Trial of Czech Serial Killer Continues on Monday

Hradec Kralove - The trial of Petr Zelenka (31), a former hospital worker accused of murdering seven patients with the anticoagulant Heparin and attempting to murder nine more, continues tomorrow with hospital employees called as witnesses. The murders allegedly took place between May and September, 2006. Zelenka was arrested in December, 2006 and arraigned on January 21, 2008. Zelenka has retracted his earlier admission of guilt, claiming that he was severely beaten by the Czech police and forced to sign his testimony. The hospital where Zelenka worked in the town of HavlĂ­ckuv Brod has since tightened its access controls on drugs and installed a new camera system. (sources: novinky.cz, aktualne.cz)
