LOUISVILLE, Ky. (AP) -- A certified medical technician has been charged with murder in the death of a nursing home patient who died of an insulin overdose almost seven years ago.

A Jefferson County grand jury on Wednesday handed up an indictment of 34-year-old David Satterfield. Police say Satterfield called investigators on Monday saying he wanted to admit to giving the fatal injection to 86-year-old Marcelline Katherine Sommer Vale in July 2007.

A judge entered a not guilty plea on his behalf during an initial appearance on Tuesday. He is being held in the Louisville jail on $50,000 cash bond. The case has been assigned to Circuit Judge Judith McDonald-Burkman.

Detectives are now combing through Satterfield's past in Kentucky, Tennessee and Florida to see if there are any other similar incidents.
