Here Are The Indictments For The Tyler Nurse Charged With Murder And Aggravated Assault

Let’s close the loop on an aside I slid into a story last week about William George Davis, 34, the Tyler nurse charged with murder and now two counts of aggravated assault with a deadly weapon for allegedly injecting air into the arterial lines of patients recovering from heart surgery. Based on verbiage in a different news story, I’d figured the recent indictment—the reason for that story—would be sealed. I was wrong about that. It’s available, and the Smith County District Attorney’s office sent it right over when I asked for it Friday.

The new details contained within it, however, are few. It’s three pages in total—one for each count. You can view them in full right here.

Things of note, to my eye:

• The aggravated assault with a deadly weapon charges are related to Pamela Henderson and Joseph Kalina. (The murder charge relates to Christopher Greenaway—but we knew that.)

• The incidents allegedly took place on Nov. 30, 2017 (Henderson) and Jan. 25, 2018 (Kalina).

• The deadly weapon is a syringe, allegedly used to inject the air.

• Although police have identified a total of seven possible incidents, it’s these three that were singled out in the Texas Board of Nursing’s order of temporary suspension in March.
