In the late 1970s and early 1980s, Genene Jones, commonly known as “Killer Nurse” or “Angel of Death” was working in San Antonio as an LVN when babies began to have mysterious medical problems and sometimes died during her shift. After being let go from her job in San Antonio, Jones moved to Kerrville where the deadly patterns continued at the clinic she was employed at.
Genene Jones is currently serving a 99-year prison sentence for the murder of one child and the injury to another in 1984. Last year, she was indicted for killing 5 babies in 1981 and 1982 by injecting them with a lethal dose of drugs.
According to News 4 San Antonio, Genene Jones was supposed to be released last month after only serving 33 years because of a mandatory release law in place at the time of her conviction.
“We looked at more cases than five but ultimately we presented on five because the evidence supports them,” Bexar County District Attorney Nico LaHood told News 4 San Antonio.
News 4 San Antonio reports that on Wednesday, prosecutors revealed new evidence they will bring against Jones for her five pending murder trials.
Prosecutors also tells News 4 San Antonio that Jones confessed to one of her fellow inmates that she killed multiple infants.
“Genene told her, ‘I didn’t kill the babies the voices in my head did,'” Prosecutor Jason Goss told News 4 San Antonio.
Genene Jones remains in custody and has a $1 million bond for each murder charge.
The first murder trial is set to begin July 19 but pre-trial motions can push the date back.
