The former nurse's aide serial killer known as the "Angel of Death" after killing dozens of elderly patients in the 1970s and 80s was found severely beaten inside his OH prison cell on Tuesday, police said.
Donald Harvey was allegedly beaten Tuesday afternoon at the Toledo Correctional Institution in OH, where he is serving time for murder. A spokeswoman for Ohio's prison system says Harvey was found badly beaten Tuesday, March 28, 2017, .
"Donald Harvey decided as the "Angel of Death" he had the right to decide who lives and who dies, and it was wrong, and he knew it, and he was a murderer", Hamilton County, Ohio, Recorder Norbert Nadel, a judge at the time of Harvey's case, told Fox19.
Harvey pleaded guilty in 1987 to killing 37 people, mostly while he worked as a nurse's aide at hospitals in Cincinnati and London, Ky.
He pleaded guilty to that and other murders to avoid the death penalty, according to court records.

Harvey had suffered sexual abuse at the hands of his uncle and a neighbor between the ages of four and 20, and was raped by his male roommate in 1970, when he was 18. They'd have a resident do that.
He claimed he began acting out of compassion for terminally ill patients, WCPO reports.
"The doctors go and spend all these years in school".
But numerous killings involved his two favorite poisons, arsenic and cyanide, which he would administer in food, using injections, or through an IV. Other victims were killed by cyanide, rat poison and arsenic; some were suffocated when he let their oxygen tanks run out.
Harvey claimed variously that he was a mercy killer putting dying patients out of their misery and also that he enjoyed the power of controlling who got to live and die on his wards. He was caught after a medical examiner smelled cyanide while doing an autopsy on a victim. He is presently service multiple life sentences and will not be eligible for parole until 2043, when he would be 91 years old.
