Texas District Court
On 31 Mairch 2012, in Texas District Court Kimberly Clark Saenz a nourice wis foond guilty o the 2008 murthers o five kidney dialysis patients an injurin five ither patients. On 2 Aprile 2012, the Angelina Coonty jury sentencit Saenz tae life impreesonment wi nae eligibility for parole an three 20-year sentences for aggravatit assault.
The five murther victims wur: Clara Strange, Thelma Metcalf, Garlin Kelley, Cora Bryant an Opal Few.
The twa eyewitness accoonts o Linda Hall an Leraline Hamilton confirmit that on 28 Aprile 2008, Saenz drew sodium hypochlorite, commonly kent as bleach, intae syringes an injectit the substance intae twa patients dialysis lines at the dialysis clinic awned bi DaVita in Lufkin, Texas.
Lufkin law enforcement officers testifee'd at the trial that they arrestit Saenz for public intoxication an creeminal trespass. These incidents relatit tae the domestic disturbances wi her husband, Mark Kevin Saenz. The husband haed filed for divorce an haed obtained a restrainin order against Saenz in Juin 2007, juist ane year afore the clinic deaths and illnesses.
The trial records reflectit that prior tae wirkin at DaVita, Saenz wis fired fae Woodland Heights hospital for stealin Demerol, which wis foond in her haundbag. Saenz wis fired frae DaVita in Aprile 2008 efter the numerous daiths at the clinic. Saenz nursin licence eventually wis suspendit. Saenz then applee'd tae wirk as a receptionist in a Lufkin medical office an lee'd on her job application aboot previous employment.
The prosecutor, Clyde Herrington, believit thare wur mair victims than juist the ten indictit cases, based on the research o the epidemiologist frae the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. The epidemiologist statistically connected Saenz to other adverse health events to patients. Lufkin Polis detectives coud anerlie obtain medical waste frae twa weeks prior tae 28 Aprile 2008, so thare wis inadequate evidence tae raise further indictments against Saenz in the ither incidents.
