A Former Nurse Is Sentenced to Life in Prison For Her Husband’s Lethal Insulin Overdose

A former nurse was sentenced to life in prison on Thursday for the death of her husband, who prosecutors said was killed with an insulin overdose in 2018.

A Madison County judge handed down the life imprisonment sentence for Marjorie “Nikki” Cappello who was convicted in May of killing her husband Jim Cappello, WAFF reported.

“It’s actually surprisingly rare that we run into truly evil people, truly unrepentantly evil people in this world,” prosecutor Tim Douthit told WAFF. “This is one of those cases.”

Prosecutors said that Nikki Cappello stole insulin from the hospital where she worked, used the drug to kill her husband and then later confessed the crime to a friend when she sought help moving the body.
