A former Michigan home nurse admitted to stealing life-saving drugs from three patients, resulting in the death of a four-year-old child.

Kristie Ann Mollohan, 40, of Kalamazoo confessed to having diluted the liquid diazepam (Valium) prescribed to her patients to control her attacks and take it for her own use in the United States District Court in Grand Rapids.

One of his patients, Ryley Maue, died of an attack on August 26, 2016 at his home in Allegan, Michigan, three days after Mollohan was fired for failing a drug test after he was suspected of stealing his medication. .

"The defendant knew that he put patients' lives at risk by diluting their diazepam since diazepam was used, among other purposes, to suppress convulsions," reads the agreement signed by Mollohan.
