Beverly Allitt was born on October 4, 1968 in Corby Glen, Lincolnshire, England.

As a child, Allitt began to show odd behavior. Records show that Allitt would wear large bandages or casts over self-inflcted wounds for attention. She was known to act out aggressively when complaining of fake illnesses.

Prior to working with children, Allitt worked in a nursing home, where it is claimed she would put feces on the wall or in a fridge for the other workers to find and clean.

While working as a State Enrolled Nurse, Allitt murdered four children and is responsible for the injuries of nine other children. During her serial series, her weapon of choice was to inject insulin or potassium chloride into children.

After a 60 day serial series, Allitt was arrested in November 1991 with the charges of attempted murder and grievous bodily harm. She was sentenced to 13 consecutive life sentences on May 28, 1993. Allitt is serving time in Nottinghamshire.
