David Kwiatkowski is charged with stealing painkillers from a New Hampshire Hospital and replacing them with saline-filled syringes tainted with his own blood.

Thirty-two New Hampshire patients have tested for the same strain of the liver-destroying disease he carries. A dozen other cases have emerged in states where he previously worked. Kwiatkowski remains jailed in New Hampshire.
