'Killer Nurse' Genene Jones transferred to Bexar County jail on new charges

Convicted baby killer Genene Jones was booked into the Bexar County jail, facing new murder charges in the deaths of five other infants.

SAN ANTONIO - The infamous 'killer nurse' Genene Jones was transferred from state prison to the Bexar County Jail Monday afternoon. Jones is facing five new murder charges, according to a search through the Bexar County Central Magistrate database.

Jones was taken into custody Monday and processed into the Bexar County Jail at 12:55 p.m. without the possibility of bond.

She faces five new felony first-degree murder charges.

Andy Kahan, a crime victim's advocate for the city of Houston, has been working closely with a family that say Genene Jones killed their children.

“Just seeing her being paraded into Bexar county jail, facing new charges, very rarely do homicide victims get a chance to smile."

Jones, 66, has been indicted on numerous new charges related to her role as a nurse at University Hospital in the early 1980s when a number of infants died under her care. Jones has been accused of injecting children with a powerful muscle relaxant.

“You know what went through my mind and I'm sure a lot of...this is the first anyone has seen the angel of death, the nurse baby killer in over 30 plus years,” Kahan said.

Jones was set to be released from prison in March of 2018 due to overcrowding after being sentenced to 99 years in 1982.

“These were victims who couldn't run, who couldn't yell, who couldn't fight back and for 30 some odd years, to have that notion that this particular individual is responsible for your death, there's a price you pay,” said Kahan.
