LOUISVILLE, Ky. (AP) - A former medical technician who told police he gave a fatal dose of insulin to a nursing home patient is scheduled to go on trial for murder next year.

David T. Satterfield told police in January he gave the fatal dose to 86-year-old Marcelline Vale in 2007.

Jefferson Circuit Judge Judith McDonald-Burkman set a trial for Oct. 27. Attorneys said at a hearing Wednesday they were still seeking documents in the case.

Satterfield was working at the Parkway Medical Center nursing home when Vale and two other patients were found with critically low blood-sugar readings. Vale died the following month. A second, 82-year-old woman also passed away, and a third woman recovered.

Police say Satterfield said of Vale, “I killed this woman and I want to admit it to you.”
