LUFKIN (AP) – A former employee at the East Texas clinic where a nurse is charged with killing five patients says she remembers one of the patients having an unusual response to dialysis.

Angie Rodriguez testified Tuesday at the trial of Kimberly Saenz. Rodriguez says she came back to work in April 2008 after a break to find one patient, Marva Rhone, saying she “couldn’t get right.” Rhone typically slept through dialysis. She later died at a hospital.

Another witness has said she saw Saenz fill syringes with bleach from a cleaning pail.

The Lufkin Daily News reports that Saenz’s attorney suggested she may have put bleach into a syringe for accuracy as she measured it for cleaning.
