The East Baton Rouge Parish coroner says the death of a 56-year-old nurse from blood clots late last week is related to an attack on her earlier this month involving a mental health patient.

As such, police say 54-year-old Jessie Guillory will face a manslaughter charge. The nurse, Lynne Truxillo, died earlier this week.

She was attacked while working at Baton Rouge General Mid City hospital, suffering clots near a knee and one that formed in a lung, blocking an artery.
