Heather Pressdee, 40, was arrested on May 24 at her home and faces two counts of homicide, three counts each of neglect of a care-dependent person and reckless endangerment as well as one count of aggravated assault, Attorney General of Pennsylvania Michelle Henry announced.
Two victims — men ages 55 and 83 — died from the insulin overdoses on Dec. 4 and Dec. 25. The surviving third patient is a 73-year-old man who Pressdee allegedly gave the insulin to on Aug. 31, 2022, the attorney general claimed, noting that of the three victims, only one was diabetic.

“The allegations in this case outline the callous abuse of incredibly vulnerable patients by a professional nurse,” Attorney General Henry said, WHP reported. “As the charges indicate, these were deliberate and intentional acts perpetrated by a care-giver who was trusted to care for these victims.”
Pressdee was being held without bail at Butler County Prison.
