The former nurse allegedly confessed in the past and said that she is responsible for the deaths of the children in her care, according to a Texas prosecutor.

The New York Post revealed that police officers think 67-year-old Genene Jones ended the lives of up to 60 children.

Jason Goss, the Bexar County prosecutor, shared Jones’ confessions during her hearing on April 18, 2018.

According to Goss, in 1998, Jones admitted to the parole board that she injected children with digoxin, heparin, and succinylcholine, which led to numerous deaths.

The New York Post also revealed that during Jones’ time working at hospitals around Texas, children under her care mysteriously died of seizures and other complications.

Jones, at the time, supposedly told a board member that, “I really did kill those babies.”

Up until today, the exact number of killings have not been determined by the authorities. The hospital staff claimed that they have misplaced the records that could show Jones’ activities in the past.

Speculations revealed that the hospital may have destroyed the documents to avoid further investigation following Jones’ sentencing.

The former nurse was convicted in 1984 of murder and injury to a child in connection with the death of a 15-month-old girl named Chelsea McClellan. Since then, she has spent decades in prison.

In March 2018, Jones was scheduled to be released from jail. Although, the prosecutors have cited new evidence and filed additional murder charges.

They have found out that Jones had something to do with the passing of 2-year-old Rosemary Vega in September 1981.

Jones had pleaded not guilty to all charges pressed on her.

Atty. Cornelius Cox, Jones’ attorney wasn’t able to immediately give a comment regarding Goss’ claims on April 19, 2018.
