Nurse suffers organ failure after anesthetist boyfriend injected her with 'unknown drugs' during alleged exorcism at home
An anesthetist and pain specialist put his 31-year-old nurse girlfriend's life in jeopardy after allegedly performing an exorcism on her, the court heard.
The woman, named Kelly Wilson, was admitted to the hospital four days ago and is fighting for her life after he injected her with unknown "controlled drugs" as a part of a "ritual". After her boyfriend, Dr. Hossam Metwally, who is also a pain specialist, injected her with the said drugs she suffered an organ failure, Daily Mail reports.
The 58-year-old boyfriend has been charged with administering an unknown noxious substance to the woman between July 2 and 5, with the intent of causing bodily harm. The couple reportedly ran a business called Lincs Pain Clinic based at their semi-detached home in a Grimsby suburb in North East Lincolnshire, England. The prosecutor on the case Martin Howard told the Grimsby Magistrates Court that the substances had a "near fatal" effect on Wilson. She is suffering from organ failure and the court heard her condition remains critical.
The woman's family came to the couple's residence after they became worried about her. After they found her, they called an ambulance and neighbors reportedly said that she had to be carried out on a stretcher. His neighbors, however, appeared shocked by the incident. One of them even said that he was "fantastic" and that he offered her a range of treatments.
The man and the woman had both worked with an NHS trust previously. Metwally reportedly also worked at Diana Princess of Wales Hospital, Scunthorpe General Hospital as well as other local clinics. He has children but does not stay with them. The two are said to have met four years ago.
Hospital staff alerted Humberside Police the following day and officers inspected the home. Metwally was arrested and police carried out a detailed forensic examination over several days.
"I can confirm a member of staff at the Trust has been charged with GBH and administering a noxious substance," Dr. Kate Wood, medical director at Northern Lincolnshire and Goole NHS Foundation Trust told the publication, "He will be excluded from working at all Trust premises. We will not be commenting further at this time."
A police spokesman said that Wilson has been in an "unresponsive" state and had a "serious medical condition." Howard also said, "What is really disturbing about the matter is she nearly lost her life."
Metwally's bail application was refused and he is set to appear before the Grimsby Crown Court on August 5.
