“Respectfully, I disagree with that. You are the worst kind. You are the monster that no one sees coming. And you have made liars of everyone who has ever told their kids that monsters don’t exist and that evil does not exist in the world.” “Ms. Mays, several times your counsel has made the point that you shouldn’t be considered a monster,” he said later in the hearing. Mays tearfully addressed the court, apologizing for the pain she had caused. “There are no words I can say that would offer the families any comfort,” Mays said. “I can only say that I am sorry for the pain I caused the families and my family. I don’t ask for forgiveness, because I don’t think I could forgive anyone who did what I did.”

Like all nursing assistants at the medical center, Mays was not authorized to administer medication, including insulin. While working the overnight shift, Mays administered deadly doses of insulin, used to treat patients with diabetes, to veterans who had been admitted to the hospital for a variety of issues related to old age. None of the patients had required treatment in the intensive care unit, nor were they close to death when they died. Some were not even diabetic, according to court documents.

“There is no more serious offense that can be heard or adjudicated or judged in this court than what you did,” Kleeh said during the hearing. During Tuesday’s sentencing, Judge Thomas S. Kleeh ordered consecutive life sentences for each murder and 20 years for the assault.

Prosecutors celebrated after the hearing, while noting that justice is “somewhat of an elusive concept” in such cases. “But I hope today that these sentences do provide the respect and honor these men deserve,” Acting US Attorney Randy Bernard said at a news conference. Prosecutors say justice an ‘elusive concept’

CNN has reached out to McCamic for comment on Tuesday’s sentence. While no specific motive was given for Mays’ actions, her attorney Jay T. McCamic cited serious mental health issues starting in the 1990s as a contributing factor that was exacerbated by stress in her life. He also mentioned Mays’ military service as a reason for a lighter sentence.
