Lucy Letby: The Cast List

Updated: Sep 20, 2023


If you enjoy reading this blog, please leave a star rating on WealthTender. Thank you!



The cast list of people involved with Lucy's case as derived from every single Chester Standard report on the case and the trial





I have spent rather a long time compiling this list from Chester Standard articles and others but I think it will prove very useful. What I will do next is start to add notes underneath each individual summarising the key aspects of their testimony (or, if they did not testify, the key aspects of their involvement in Lucy's case).



Detail from David and Goliath, a colour lithograph by Osmar Schindler (c. 1888)




There are over 100 individuals on the list. There may be others I should add. Please let me know if I have missed any out. Also, please let me know if there is something specific you think I should mention in relation to (a) specific individual(s). It should be something factual i.e. something that is from a credible source.

Individuals who do not appear to have been believed by the prosecution side


Title: Mr

First name: Nicholas

Last name: Rheinberg

Gender: M

Group: Legal

Subgroup: Crown

Role/job: Coroner

Employer/association: HM Coroners, Cheshire


Recording a verdict of misadventure, coroner Nicholas Rheinberg told the inquest in Chester in February 2015: ‘There were very considerable signs [the tube was incorrectly positioned] and I find it surprising these signs were not realised.’ https://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-4518212/Baby-deaths-Countess-Chester-Hospital-probed.html


Letby also managed to slip through the gaps in the coronial system. Hospital managers asked the Cheshire coroner, Dr Nicholas Rheinberg, to investigate the seven baby deaths in February 2017. The coroner declined, according to sources, telling the trust he was not a “quality-assurance service” for the NHS. Rheinberg retired that year. https://www.thetimes.co.uk/article/damning-email-told-of-chaos-on-lucy-letby-ward-kd9s28k5f




Title: Dr

First name: George

Last name: Kokai

Gender: M

Group: Medical

Subgroup: Doctor

Role/job: Pathologist

Employer/association: Alder Hey


Mr Myers says, for the case of Child C, he looks at the post-mortem evidence of whether there was a gastrointestinal blockage. He refers to the agreed evidence by the pathologist, Dr Kokai, who conducted the post-mortem examination, who recorded a 'distended colon' for Child C, which was not normal. He says Dr Marnerides refused to accept this evidence, who said the bowel was 'normal'. https://www.chesterstandard.co.uk/news/23615797.recap-lucy-letby-trial-june-27---defence-closing-speech/


Dr George Kokai carried out a post-mortem examination for Child C. He noted a distended colon, which Dr Marnerides said was "not an abnormality". He said the potential complication was a twisted colon that would lead to "obvious" symptoms of pain. There was evidence of "acute pneumonia". Dr Marnerides said one could die of pneumonia or with penumonia. He said the former was plausible, but upon hearing further clinical evidence, he reviewed his opinion. He said babies dying of penumonia experience gradual deterioration, which was not the case here. He said he revisited the cause of death, viewing images of a distended stomach, and no evidence of NEC. Prof Arthurs said the small bowel was dilated. Dr Marnerides observed a dilated stomach and bowel, and noted Child C had been off CPAP for over 12 hours. No air had been obtained from aspirates before the collapse. He had never known CPAP belly being the cause of an arrest in a baby in his years of experience. He said, in his opinion, the cause of Child C's collapse was of excessive air administered into the stomach via the naso-gastric tube. https://www.chesterstandard.co.uk/news/23628455.recap-lucy-letby-trial-july-3---judges-summing/


Dr George Kokai carried out a post-mortem examination of Child I. Dr Andreas Marnerides was dependent on the report. Dr Marnerides said Child I did not have NEC. He was "very sceptical" that Child I died of natural causes. He said the collapses were more likely to be excessive air administered to the stomach, via the NGT. The defence say a similar event happened for Child I on August 23, a day when Letby was not on duty. https://www.chesterstandard.co.uk/news/23634101.recap-lucy-letby-trial-july-5---judges-summing/


Dr George Kokai carried out a post-mortem examination [of Child O]. Dr Andreas Marnerides reviewed, and said injuries to the liver were the result of impact trauma. He said during treatment, small bruises could be caused to the surface of the liver, and would not be extensive. He says the liver is not in an area where CPR is applied. He has only seen this kind of injury to the liver before in children, not babies, from accidents involving bicycles. He did not think CPR could produce this extensive injury to the liver, and has never heard of this sort being accepted as such. He also found internal gastric distention, and concluded there had been an air embolus. Prof Arthurs also referred to radiograph images, taken post-mortem. He said the gases were an 'unusual finding'.  https://www.chesterstandard.co.uk/news/23636819.recap-lucy-letby-trial-july-6---judges-summing/




Title: Dr

First name: Francis

Last name: Potter

Gender: M

Group: Medical

Subgroup: Doctor

Role/job: Consultant anaesthetist

Employer/association: Alder Hey


A registrar doctor, who cannot be identified for legal reasons, told Manchester Crown Court on Monday, March 6, how he was asked to review Child N from about 7.30am on June 15….Giving evidence on Monday, the doctor said: “I saw blood at the back of the throat … that prevented me from seeing where the entry to his airway was.”. He said he also noticed “a degree of swelling”. Prosecutor Simon Driver asked: “ What did you notice first?” The doctor replied: “I think I will have seen the blood first because that is such an unusual thing to see at the time of intubation.” He said he could not see where the blood was coming from or what had caused the swelling....Another doctor told the court he too could not intubate Child N following a further sudden deterioration in the afternoon, after 3ml of blood was withdrawn from his nasogastric tube. Dr Huw Mayberry said: “I could see the vocal cords but I was unable to get a very clear view because there was substantial swelling within the airway. “The swelling was unlike anything I had encountered previously. It looked quite large and reddy-pink in colour.”...Dr Gibbs said the “serious life-threatening deterioration” only improved after a consultant anaesthetist [Dr Potter], called from Liverpool’s Alder Hey Children’s Hospital, managed to intubate at his first attempt. He told the court he “couldn’t understand” why two consultants, two registrars and two anaesthetists had failed previously to intubate Child N throughout the day, but said the adrenaline may have helped reduce the swelling....Alder Hey anaesthetist Dr Francis Potter told jurors that he did not see blood or swelling in Child N’s throat when he successfully inserted the breathing tube. Following his transfer to Alder Hey, Dr Potter said Child N’s stay was “fairly uneventful”, although there were episodes of “apnoea” in which he would temporarily stop breathing. Dr Potter said apnoea could simply be a sign a child was unwell or it could have a more specific reason. https://www.chesterstandard.co.uk/news/23366941.lucy-letby-unusual-presence-blood-throat-baby/


Alder Hey consultant anaesthetist Dr Francis Potter was asked to give evidence. Mr Myers said he had told the court his interest was paediatric intensive care, and he had experience with airway problem resolution. He said the intubation was managed with 'relative ease'. He said Dr Potter had been "surprised" there had been difficulties in intubating Child N as he said the Countess of Chester Hospital team was "pretty competent". He says Dr Bohin "comes to the rescue [of the prosecution]" by not agreeing with the opinion of Dr Potter. He said Dr Bohin said the drugs given to Child N would have reduced the swelling. He said it was a disagreement between the two prosecution witnesses. https://www.chesterstandard.co.uk/news/23621368.recap-lucy-letby-trial-june-29---defence-closing-speech/

General reference


He [Myers] says of Dr Andreas Marnerides, a pathologist, "is not a clinician, is not a paediatrician or a neonatologist", which "puts some limits [on his expertise]". He says his expertise is on what happens following a death, not in life. He says Dr Marnerides is "reliant" on the evidence of others, something which he agreed. He says he made a lot of reference to Dr Dewi Evans, and it is "too late in the day" to "insinuate" it is someone else. https://www.chesterstandard.co.uk/news/23613176.recap-lucy-letby-trial-june-26---defence-closing-speech/


Child A


Dr Marnerides said it appeared Child A, a twin boy, died as a result of an injection of air into his bloodstream. https://www.chesterstandard.co.uk/news/23422288.lucy-letby-baby-suffered-liver-injury-akin-road-traffic-collision/


The judge refers to expert witness Dr Andreas Marnerides' evidence. His expertise, the court is told, is on the pathology of conditions on those who had died. He said there was "no evidence of infection" or "any other abnormalities". He said he could see, from his study, "empty structures" of fat or air in Child A - after testing, he ruled out the former. He said he could see evidence of air in the brain when the baby was alive. The findings "could not be taken as absolute proof of air embolus". He said there was "no evidence of any natural cause of death", or any of natural disease. He took the view that Child A's death was of air embolus via injection. https://www.chesterstandard.co.uk/news/23628455.recap-lucy-letby-trial-july-3---judges-summing/


Child C


The note recorded bile on a blanket and black-stained fluid for Child C. He says nurse Yvonne Griffiths hasn't signed for a 9am reading on June 12, and something was entered for noon and not signed. He says bile on a blanket and black fluid is recorded in the nursing note at 6.30pm, but is not noted on the fluid chart.He says a radiograph was taken at 12.36pm. Dr Evans, Dr Bohin and Dr Andreas Marnerides had all regarded the image as a 'suspicious event' of harm. He says Letby was not on duty. Dr Anne Boothroyd recorded 'marked gaseous distention of the stomach'.Mr Myers says the jury should take this as "proof" the experts can "get it wrong".He says if this event happened when Letby was on duty, Letby would be accused of causing it.....He refers to the agreed evidence by the pathologist, Dr Kokai, who conducted the post-mortem examination, who recorded a 'distended colon' for Child C, which was not normal. He says Dr Marnerides refused to accept this evidence, who said the bowel was 'normal'. https://www.chesterstandard.co.uk/news/23615797.recap-lucy-letby-trial-june-27---defence-closing-speech/


Child C, a boy, was subjected to an excessive infusion/injection of air into his nasogastric tube, he [Dr Marnerides] said. https://www.chesterstandard.co.uk/news/23422288.lucy-letby-baby-suffered-liver-injury-akin-road-traffic-collision/


Mr Johnson says the jury know, as a fact, from Dr Andreas Marnerides, that Child C did not have a problem with his gut, as there was no sign of infection or sepsis. There was no evidence of Child C having had an obstruction in his bowel....Dr Marnerides said there was "nothing unusual" about Child C's bowel. He concluded Child C died "with pneumonia not from pneumonia" and the gas in the bowel could not be explained by infection or an abonormality in the bowel. He said "air must have been injected into the nasogastric tube", splinting the diaphragm, which would have compromised Child C's breathing and killed him. He added: "I have never in the past 10 years, come across even a suggestion that 'CPAP belly' would lead to the deterioration of a baby, let alone this gastric distention that would lead to [a baby's death]." https://www.chesterstandard.co.uk/news/23603440.recap-lucy-letby-trial-june-21--prosecution-closing-speech/


Dr George Kokai carried out a post-mortem examination for Child C. He noted a distended colon, which Dr Marnerides said was "not an abnormality". He said the potential complication was a twisted colon that would lead to "obvious" symptoms of pain. There was evidence of "acute pneumonia". Dr Marnerides said one could die of pneumonia or with penumonia. He said the former was plausible, but upon hearing further clinical evidence, he reviewed his opinion. He said babies dying of penumonia experience gradual deterioration, which was not the case here. He said he revisited the cause of death, viewing images of a distended stomach, and no evidence of NEC. Prof Arthurs said the small bowel was dilated. Dr Marnerides observed a dilated stomach and bowel, and noted Child C had been off CPAP for over 12 hours. No air had been obtained from aspirates before the collapse. He had never known CPAP belly being the cause of an arrest in a baby in his years of experience. He said, in his opinion, the cause of Child C's collapse was of excessive air administered into the stomach via the naso-gastric tube. https://www.chesterstandard.co.uk/news/23628455.recap-lucy-letby-trial-july-3---judges-summing/


The judge refers to the case of Child C. He says medical experts found it difficult to conclude the cause of death, but Dr Marnerides said it was air administered into his stomach via the naso-gastric tube. Letby said she did nothing harmful to Child C, and a cause such as a gastrointestinal blockage cannot be excluded, that Child C should have been treated at a tertiary unit, and there was a failure to react to bile aspirates, vomiting, and an overall lack of care. https://www.chesterstandard.co.uk/news/23628455.recap-lucy-letby-trial-july-3---judges-summing/


Child D


The “likely explanation” for the death of Child D, a girl, was an air embolism into her circulation. [Dr Marnerides] https://www.chesterstandard.co.uk/news/23422288.lucy-letby-baby-suffered-liver-injury-akin-road-traffic-collision/


Another medical expert, Dr Marnerides, had ruled out sepsis, and concluded Child D was killed by an air embolus.  https://www.chesterstandard.co.uk/news/23603440.recap-lucy-letby-trial-june-21--prosecution-closing-speech/


Mr Myers refers to the pathologist's report for Child D, recording damaged lungs, "continuing respiratory problems". Presence of infection is "not ruled out" following negative microbiology tests, as Child D had been on antibiotics. Mr Myers said despite that, Dr Marnerides "preferred" air embolus as a conclusion. He said he had taken into account clinicians' views of how well Child D was doing. Mr Myers says Child D was not doing well on respiration. https://www.chesterstandard.co.uk/news/23615797.recap-lucy-letby-trial-june-27---defence-closing-speech/


Dr Andreas Marnerides said pneumonia was likely to be present at birth for Child D. Professor Arthurs talked of a 'black line' in front of the spine indicating gas in the great vessels, which was "unusual" in children who had died without an explanation. It was present in "two other children", one of whom was Child A. There was "more air" in Child D than Child A. One explanation was someone was injecting air into the child, and the radiograph images were consistent with, but not diagnostic of, externally administered air to Child D. Dr Marnerides said the presence of air in such a vessel was "significant". He said from a pathology point of view, air embolus could not be proved. He said there was "no other natural disease" that could explain Child D's death. He said in his opinion, Child D died with, not from, pneumonia. He concluded the 'likely explanation' was air embolus. https://www.chesterstandard.co.uk/news/23631372.recap-lucy-letby-trial-july-4---judges-summing/


Child E


He [Dr Marnerides] told the court he could no offer no opinion on the death of Child E, a twin boy, because no post-mortem examination took place. https://www.chesterstandard.co.uk/news/23422288.lucy-letby-baby-suffered-liver-injury-akin-road-traffic-collision/


Child I


Another girl, Child I, received an excessive injection of air into her stomach, he [Dr Marnerides] said. https://www.chesterstandard.co.uk/news/23422288.lucy-letby-baby-suffered-liver-injury-akin-road-traffic-collision/


Dr Marnerides said at the time of Child I's death, she had no acute illnesses or abnormalities in the bowel, other than presence of air. The presence of gas had "no pathological cause". He said the collapses were air administered from the NG Tube. https://www.chesterstandard.co.uk/news/23606159.recap-lucy-letby-trial-june-22--prosecution-closing-speech/


Dr Marnerides said Child I did not have NEC. He was "very sceptical" that Child I died of natural causes. He said the collapses were more likely to be excessive air administered to the stomach, via the NGT.  https://www.chesterstandard.co.uk/news/23634101.recap-lucy-letby-trial-july-5---judges-summing/


Child O


Dr Andreas Marnerides, the reviewing pathologist, thought that the liver injuries were most likely the result of impact type trauma and not the result of CPR….He certified the cause of death to be “Inflicted traumatic injury to the liver and profound gastric and intestinal distension following acute excessive injection or infusion of air via a naso-gastric tube” and air embolus. https://www.chesterstandard.co.uk/news/23035356.recap-prosecution-opens-trial-lucy-letby-accused-countess-chester-hospital-baby-murders/


Paediatric pathology expert Dr Andreas Marnerides had told jurors he concluded Child O died because of “inflicted traumatic injury” to the liver, as well as receiving fatal injections of air into the stomach and bloodstream....“I have never seen this type of injury in the context of CPR so I would say the force required would be of the magnitude of that generated by a baby jumping on a trampoline and falling.” He agreed that smaller internal bruising to the liver sustained by Child O’s triplet brother Child P – who Letby is alleged to have murdered the next day – could be capable of being caused by CPR. But asked if “rigorous” chest compressions could be the cause of the internal bruising in Child O’s case, Dr Marnerides said: “I don’t think so, no." “This is a huge area of bruising for a liver of this size. This is not something you see in CPR.” Mr Myers said: “So you don’t accept the proposition that forceful CPR could cause this injury in general terms, do you agree it cannot be categorically excluded as a possibility?” Dr Marnerides replied: “We are not discussing possibilities here, we are discussing probabilities. “When you refer to possibilities, I am thinking for example of somebody walking in the middle of the Sahara desert found dead with a pot and head trauma. “It is possible the pot fell from the air from a helicopter. The question is ‘is it probable?’ and I don’t think we can say it is probable.” Mr Myers asked: “Is it possible in your opinion for at least some of what we see in the damage to the liver arising from the insertion of a cannula?” The consultant said: “I would consider it extremely unlikely. I would expect some kind of perforation injury.” https://www.chesterstandard.co.uk/news/23424649.letby-trial-forceful-cpr-not-cause-babys-liver-damage/


Jurors were shown post-mortem examination photographs which showed two separate sites of bruising, as well as areas of a blood clot. Prosecutor Nick Johnson KC asked the consultant: “How does that injury come to be in a child of (Child O’s) age?”...Mr Johnson said: “Looking at this sequence of photographs, can you rule out the possibility that these injuries were caused by CPR?” Dr Marnerides said: “I cannot convince myself that in the setting of a neonatal unit this would be a reasonable proposition to explain this. I don’t think CPR can produce this extensive injury to a liver.”....Dr Marnerides said: “In my view, the cause of death was inflicted traumatic injury to the liver, profound gastric and intestinal distension following acute excessive injection/infusion of air via a naso-gastric tube and air embolism due to administration into a venous line.” https://www.chesterstandard.co.uk/news/23422288.lucy-letby-baby-suffered-liver-injury-akin-road-traffic-collision/


During Child O's resuscitation in his final collapse, a doctor had said efforts were made to decompress Child O's abdomen. In cross-examination it had been suggested this was the cause of the liver injury. Dr Brearey and Dr Marnerides had rejected this, Mr Johnson tells the court. https://www.chesterstandard.co.uk/news/23600333.recap-lucy-letby-trial-june-20--prosecution-closing-speech/


Dr George Kokai carried out a post-mortem examination. Dr Andreas Marnerides reviewed, and said injuries to the liver were the result of impact trauma. He said during treatment, small bruises could be caused to the surface of the liver, and would not be extensive. He says the liver is not in an area where CPR is applied. He has only seen this kind of injury to the liver before in children, not babies, from accidents involving bicycles. He did not think CPR could produce this extensive injury to the liver, and has never heard of this sort being accepted as such. He also found internal gastric distention, and concluded there had been an air embolus. https://www.chesterstandard.co.uk/news/23636819.recap-lucy-letby-trial-july-6---judges-summing/


Earlier, Dr Marnerides said the most likely explanation for the death of Child P was excessive air injected via a nasogastric tube into his stomach. https://www.chesterstandard.co.uk/news/23424649.letby-trial-forceful-cpr-not-cause-babys-liver-damage/


Child P


Dr Marnerides said he had no evidence to indicate a natural disease that would account for Child P's death. He thought small haematomas to the liver were potentially the result of CPR, or as a result of prematurity, and did not have enough to say it was an impact injury. He said there was no clinical evidence for a natural cause. He said having considered other accounts, he concluded there was gastric distention caused by excessive air injected into the stomach. https://www.chesterstandard.co.uk/news/23636819.recap-lucy-letby-trial-july-6---judges-summing/
