Former nurse and admitted killer confesses to murder of Jersey City judge
Admitted killer and former nurse Charles Cullen pleaded guilty in court Thursday in court to the murder of a Jersey City judge.
Cullen says he killed Judge John Yengo at St. Barnabas Hospital in Livingston in June of 1988. According to the former nurse, he caused Yengos death by injecting Lidocaine and other substances into the judges IV line. Cullen has admitted to killing approximately 40 patients during his 16-year nursing career.
Investigators believe the 72-year-old Yengo may have been Cullens first victim. In all, Cullen has pleaded guilty to killing 24 people.
