An Australian nurse admitted Monday to murdering 11 elderly people by setting fire to the Sydney nursing home where he worked in November 2011, The Associated Press reported.

During the first day of his trial Monday, Roger Dean also pleaded guilty to causing grievous bodily harm to another eight nursing home residents injured by the blaze.

The 37-year-old registered nurse was on duty when he set the fire and later appeared on television describing his efforts to rescue trapped people at the nursing home in the suburb of Quakers Hill.

He made his pleas in New South Wales state Supreme Court on Monday. His sentencing hearing starts on Thursday. He potentially faces life imprisonment.

Police had questioned him at the home hours before the blaze over theft allegations. He has already pleaded guilty to stealing prescription drugs from the home.
