Post created on 1:14 pm
Germany has given a life sentence of two counts of charges of murder and six counts of attempted murder by a nurse after sedating patients not to disturb him while at work.
Due to the particular seriousness of the offences, the court on Monday ruled that he would almost certainly not be eligible for early release from prison after 15 years, the NAN reports.
A lifelong working ban was also imposed on the nurse.
The young man admitted in court that he had injected patients with drugs in a recovery ward at a Munich hospital to keep them sedated.
In his defence, the man said he had always drunk alcohol before his shifts and would sleep it off at work. Therefore, he sedated patients with excessive doses of drugs so they would not disturb him.
