A SENIOR care assistant, who was suffering from depression, gave an overdose of sedatives to a resident in an old people's home believing that the victim wanted to die, an Old Bailey court was told.

Joyce Franklin gave the cocktail of drugs to Dorothy Clementson, 93, but the elderly woman survived. Franklin, 40, from Guildford, Surrey, admitted a charge of administering a noxious thing so as to endanger life and was remanded on bail.
