A nurse accused of killing eight seniors at two long-term care homes in southwestern Ontario has had her case put over until Dec. 8.

Elizabeth Wettlaufer, 49, made a brief appearance in court by video link Friday.

Wettlaufer was charged last month with eight counts of first-degree murder in the deaths of elderly residents at nursing homes in Woodstock, Ont., and London, Ont.

Police allege Wettlaufer used drugs to kill her victims between 2007 and 2014 while she worked at the facilities.

Records from the College of Nurses of Ontario show Wettlaufer was first registered as a nurse in August 1995 but resigned Sept. 30 of this year. She is no longer a registered nurse.

The victims have been identified as James Silcox, 84, Maurice Granat, 84, Gladys Millard, 87, Helen Matheson, 95, Mary Zurawinski, 96, Helen Young, 90, Maureen Pickering, 79, Arpad Horvath, 75.
