A nurse has been been jailed for 14 years for attempting to murder her own mother.
Julia Knight had been accused of injecting her mother with a potentially fatal dose of insulin to prevent her being discharged from Horton Hospital, in Banbury.
Julie Knight injected 81-year-old Irene Robson with insulin at Horton General Hospital in Banbury. She claimed it was to try to stop her from being discharged, but a jury at Oxford Crown Court found her guilty.
The 56-year-old nurse sobbed in the dock when the result was read out. During the trial the court heard how Knight had forged a prescription for insulin at the doctor's surgery where she worked. She then visited her mother and injected her in the stomach with the potentially lethal dose.
She said she was trying to cause a medical blip so that her mother would stay in hospital for longer and a proper care package could be arranged.
Doctors had to save her life after she fell unconscious when her blood sugar levels dropped and then realised she had been injected with insulin. Irene died in September this year of unrelated causes.
