Alleged killer nurse back in court today
A trial date is expected to be set today in a Woodstock court for a former nurse charged with killing eight nursing-home residents and injuring several others in London and Woodstock.
Forty-nine-year-old Elizabeth Wettlaufer waived her right to a preliminary hearing when she appeared in court earlier this month.
She was charged with eight counts of first-degree murder last October and an additional four counts of attempted murder and two counts of aggravated assault in January.
Court documents allege Wettlaufer injected those six alleged victims in her care with insulin.
Akil Thomas of the IceDogs was named today to the OHL's All-Rookie team. Thomas was selected as the first team right winger, garnering more votes than any other first year player.
The IceDogs made 5 selections Wednesday night in the first ever Under 18 Priority Selection event. While the traditional Priority Selection draft is dominated by Minor Midget hockey players, the Under-18 draft is to identify "late bloomers" from the Major Midget hockey ranks.
Six Niagara IceDogs prospects from last weekends’ draft have been invited to participate in the upcoming 2017 OHL Gold Cup. Philip Tomasino, Billy Constantinou, Ian Martin, Christian Sbaraglia, Ryan Campbell and Mason Howard will be in Kitchener for the event May 3rd-7th.
