The next time Elizabeth Wettlaufer’s first-degree murder case comes back to court, she’ll appear in person.
The 49-year-old former nurse accused of killing eight elderly patients at a long term care home in Woodstock and one in London has been in custody since she was charged in the case last fall.
After a brief hearing Friday in Woodstock, Wettlaufer’s lawyer confirmed she would physically attend her next court date scheduled for Friday, January 13th.
The OPP announced at the end of October Wettlaufer had been charged in connection with the deaths of James Silcox, Maurice Granat, Gladys Millard, Helen Matheson, Mary Zurawinski, Helen Young, Maureen Pickering and Arpad Horvath.
The alleged victims died between 2007 and 2014.
According to the College of Nurses of Ontario, Wettlaufer registered as a nurse in August 1995 and resigned on September 30th, 2016.
