An Edmonton nurse who stabbed her husband in the neck with an insulin-loaded needle and set a trap for him using cooking oil and syringes is blaming it on the devil.

At a sentencing hearing Friday for Luisa Hernandez, 46, defence lawyer Rory Ziv read out a letter she wrote in which she apologizes and expresses how bad she feels.

“I keep thinking how could I have done such a horrible crime. To attempt to destroy someone’s life, I still can’t believe what I did,” wrote Hernandez.

“I am so ashamed of what I have done,” she said, adding that she has always been a good person in the past.
