The Court of Appeal is set to consider the child serial killer’s bid to challenge her convictions in a trial expected to finish this week.

Letby, 34, is currently serving 14 whole life orders after being found guilty of the murder of seven babies and the attempted murder of six others.

The offences took place while she was working in the neonatal unit at the Countess of Chester Hospital.

The nurse had an initial application to challenge her convictions refused by a single judge in the first stage of the appeals process.

This upcoming hearing will form the second and final stage of the process, where three senior judges will review her appeal application.

Letby is also facing a retrial for a single count of attempting to murder a baby, known as ‘Child K’, which is set to take place in June this year.

As a result, to avoid prejudice, the media will not be allowed to report the full detail of the appeal hearing at this stage.
