(Scroll down for video) A nurse was arrested and charged after he was caught having sex with dead bodies at a hospital, according to press reports in California.
The nurse in California, was charged with necrophilia after being caught committing a sexual act with a dead woman.
61-year-old Alejandro Razo was arrested Sunday at the Sherman Oaks Hospital, where he works. Security guards called police after they discovered that a deceased patient had somehow been violated by an employee of the hospital, Los Angeles Police Department Lieutenant Andy Neiman said.
It is still unclear how the suspect was captured, but he was charged with necrophilia and hit with a
violation of a Health and Safety Code.
"It is a very delicate case because you're dealing with someone who is deceased, a loved one of someone who really could not even defend herself, so it is our duty to fight for them," Neiman said.
Committing necrophilia was not a crime in California until 2004. Razo faces up to three years in prison if convicted.
He reportedly paid a $20,000 bond, in order to be free pending the outcome of his trial.
