Later, she was charged with the murder of eight babies along with an attempt for the same for 6 more. Police ravaged and searched her house after the initial arrest but could not find any proof as such and this had to release Lucy on bail. However, fresh accusations lined up, putting her under the investigatory spotlight once again and it was followed by her arrest for the charges of attempt to murder 3 more infants as well.
