A French doctor has been charged with poisoning a total of 24 patients, some as young as 4, with nine dead as a result.

Anesthesiologist Frederic Pechier, 47, was already under investigation for seven cases, AFP reported. He now faces charges for poisoning an additional 17 people, and may face life in prison if found guilty.

“You cannot trust a doctor who, at one point, has been labelled a poisoner... My family is broken and I am afraid for my children.”

Nine of the 24 total patients, ranging in ages 4 to 80, died in the suspected cases, AFP reported. The incidents occurred while Pechier was working at two private clinics in Besancon, France.
