Currently, she faces 14 charges, including eight of murder, four of attempted murder and two of aggravated assault.
Wettlaufer’s lawyer is not commenting but the Ministry of the Attorney General says ”significant developments in this case are anticipated tomorrow (Thursday).”
She waived her right to a preliminary hearing in April and opted to go straight to trial.
It’s alleged all the incident happened between 2007 and last year.
Wettlaufer worked in long-term care homes in Woodstock, London and Paris and often was the nurse in charge of the night shift.
