The court heard that nurse Mario G., 26, typically drank even more when on his days off, consuming up to three bottles of vodka and between 20 and 25 beers a day.

He has now gone on trial for murdering two people while seriously injuring three others at the Munich I Regional Court, in Bavaria, Germany, on Tuesday, 24th January.

Mario G., who was reportedly an alcoholic and worked at the University Hospital Rechts der Isar (located to the right of the Isar river), faces 15 years in prison if found guilty.

The 26-year-old defendant from the state of North Rhine-Westphalia was looking after patients who had been recently operated on in the recovery room of the hospital’s neurosurgical department in the summer of 2020.

He was reportedly employed despite not possessing the necessary certificates, as the subcontractor through which he was employed at the hospital did not check his documents properly.

Mario G. said: “I was only trained as a geriatric nurse, I embellished my CV.”

German media claimed that he had regularly consumed large amounts of alcohol, both during working hours and during his time off.

He reportedly drank up to three bottles of vodka and between 20 and 25 beers on a day off and spent more than EUR 150 (GBP 132.5) on alcohol per day.

Mario G. explained how he managed to cover his addiction and said: “Then when I had to go to work, I would put half a Flanker (a cheap perfume) on myself so that they wouldn’t smell my boozy breath.”

He also regularly fell asleep during working hours but had never suffered any consequences from his employer, over a period of four months.

The defendant said: “I didn’t take care of my patients. I entered fictitious values, only set them up for rounds. I was never asked about it.”

He reportedly drank a whole bottle of Jaegermeister and a total of 10 beers before he headed to his workplace on the day of the incident.

Mario G. said: “When I finished it, I lined up the bottles, like in football, in a 4-3-3 formation and took a picture of it.”

But when his shift started at the hospital he decided he would inject an elderly patient – famous poet Hans Magnus Enzensberger, aged 93 – with sedatives such as diazepam and lorazepam because the elderly patient had wet himself.

He then gave several other patients heparin which is an anticoagulant and can cause bleeding when used.

But when the 93-year-old man’s health worsened, the defendant called a resuscitation team after which his cover was exposed by hospital officials.

Two of the patients reportedly died as a result of his negligence, while three others ended up severely injured, including the poet.

Mario G. was arrested and placed behind bars in November 2020.

Over two years later, at the beginning of the trial, he said: “I didn’t mean to kill anyone, I’m very sorry about everything.

“But yeah I was hungover, my goal on duty was to be able to use my cell phone. That’s the truth.”

Prosecutor Johanna Heidrich has accused Mario G. of multiple counts of murder and attempted murder. He faces life imprisonment if found guilty.

The university hospital said: “We have also filed a complaint against the accused ourselves. Since the incident became known, we have tightened our control mechanisms again.”

The defendant’s lawyers Omer Sahinci and Benedikt Stehle said: “Our client has made a comprehensive confession.

“He deeply regrets what he did. However, he denies the murder charge.

“He never intended to kill anyone. He wanted to calm the patients.”
