Nurse Kimberly Saenz Charged With Injecting 10 Patients With Bleach, Killing 5
A former nurse has been charged with injecting 10 patients with bleach — killing five of them — at a dialysis center in Lufkin.
Kimberly Saenz has been indicted by an Angelina County grand jury on one count of capital murder and five counts of aggravated assault.
She's charged with injecting bleach into the blood stream of her dialysis patients over a span of four weeks last April.
DaVita, which runs the clinic, says the indictments were a "painful reminder" of the deaths that unfolded last year.
Saenz was charged last May with two counts of aggravated assault for injecting bleach into two patients. Both lived.
The 35-year-old wasn't charged in any deaths until this week's indictments, which link her to five deaths.
Saenz is in the Angelina County jail without bond. Her attorney, John Henry Tatum, didn't immediately return a call for comment.
Family members of several DaVita patients who died at the clinic last April have long speculated about the nurse, and were not surprised by the indictments.
The Lufkin Daily News first reported the indictments.
