A Munich court Monday condemned a male nurse, 27, to life in prison for killing two patients by intentionally giving them illegal substances so that he could be “left in peace.”

According to a spokesman for the Munich district court in southern Germany, the nurse, only known as Mario G., was also found guilty on six charges of attempted murder.

In the course of his trial, Mario G. admitted to administering medication combinations to patients while working in the recovery area of a Munich hospital.

“I wanted to be left in peace,” Mario G. told the court.

Three of the attempts targeted the German intellectual and writer Hans Magnus Enzensberger in November 2020, but he survived.

Enzensberger died two years later of natural causes, at the age of 93.

The two patients who died as a result of Mario G.’s actions were 80 and 89 years old.

According to prosecutors, Mario G. administered the drugs because he wanted to be left alone during his shift, when he was often hung over.

The case recalled that of notorious German nurse Niels Hoegel, who was sentenced in 2019 to life in prison for murdering 85 patients in his care.

Hoegel, believed to be Germany’s most prolific serial killer, murdered patients with lethal injections between 2000 and 2005, before he was eventually caught in the act.

In 2020, a Polish healthcare worker was sentenced to life in prison in Munich for killing at least three people with insulin.
