Police: Man surrenders in 2007 insulin overdose

LOUISVILLE, Ky. (AP) - A certified medical technician is in the Louisville jail charged with murder in the death of a nursing home patient who died of an insulin overdose almost seven years ago.

Louisville Police Sgt. Donny Burbrink says 34-year-old David Satterfield called detectives on Monday and said he wanted to admit to giving the fatal injection to 86-year-old Marcelline Katherine Sommer Vale in July 2007.

Through a jail spokeswoman, Satterfield declined an interview request from The Associated Press on Wednesday. A judge entered a not guilty plea on his behalf during an initial appearance on Tuesday. He is being held on $50,000 cash bond.

Burbrink says detectives are now combing through Satterfield's past in Kentucky, Tennessee and Florida to see if there are any other similar incidents.
