Zdeněk Zelenka, a former nurse in a hospital in eastern Bohemia, was sentenced to life imprisonment on Thursday for a series of murders he committed by administering lethal doses of the blood-thinning drug heparin to his patients. A court in Hradec Králové said Mr Zelenka committed seven murders and attempted another ten between May and October 2006. The former nurse said he gave his patients the drug to “see some action”. Experts confirmed that Mr Zelenka is sane and fully responsible for his deeds. In the Czech Republic, 33 prisoners are currently serving life sentences.
