Christine Malèvre


Christine Malèvre

Christine Malèvre (born 1970) is a French serial killer.

A former nurse, she was arrested in 1998 on suspicion of having killed as many as 30 patients. She confessed to some of the murders, but claimed she had done so at the request of the patients, who were all terminally ill. France, however, does not recognize a “right to die”, and Malèvre eventually recanted most of her confessions. The families of several of her victims strongly denied that their relatives had expressed any will to die, much less asked Malèvre to kill them.

She was sentenced to 12 years in prison in 2003, for the murders of six patients.
