KLTV-TV says Dallas-based pulmonologist Dr William Yarbrough told the jury that the patients’ fatal brain damage was “caused by the injection of air.”
Yarbourgh testified that the air injections took place after the surgeries because the complications occurred during the patient’s recovery.

Gatewood added, “With the facts we have, with the evidence we have, a serial killer being in hospital is the only thing that makes sense.”
