LOS ANGELES — A 62-year-old male nurse was sentenced to two years in prison for allegedly having sex with the corpse of a woman he cared for in a southern California hospital, according to KTLA.
The alleged incident happened in 2013. Alejandro Razo, of Reseda, Calif., was sentenced to two years in state prison, the Los Angeles County District Attorney’s Office said on Thursday.
Officials said DNA evidence helped to convict Razo of having sexual contact with the body of an 82-year-old woman at Sherman Oaks Hospital.
Prosecutors said Razo was tasked with preparing the woman’s body when she died of natural causes back in January 2013.
“Soon after, while the defendant was alone with the deceased victim, another nurse walked into the room and discovered Razo with his pants down, having sexual contact with the woman’s corpse,” prosecutors said.
