Jury: St. Luke's Hospital should not have sued families from unsuccessful killer nurse lawsuit
A Lehigh County jury today found that St. Luke's University Hospital should not have sued the families of two patients who died at the facility when serial killer Charles Cullen worked there. Cullen is serving consecutive life sentences in New Jersey after admitting he killed at least 29 people in Pennsylvania and New Jersey. In 2004, family members of two former patients who died at the hospital in Fountain Hill filed malpractice suits against St. Luke's. Harry Miller sued on behalf of Regina Miller, and Robert and Leslie Hall sued on behalf of Marilyn Hall. The suits claimed Cullen murdered those clients during his tenure at St. Luke's, between 2000 and 2002.
