Former health professional sentenced to life in prison after pleading guilty to the murder of 7 veterans

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.” “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.” 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.

“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. Like all nursing assistants at the medical center, Mays was not authorized to administer medication, including insulin.

“Ms. Mays, several times your counsel has made the point that you shouldn’t be considered a monster,” he said later in the hearing. 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.

“But I hope today that these sentences do provide the respect and honor these men deserve,” Acting US Attorney Randy Bernard said during a news conference. Bernard said that while justice was a hard goal to reach, prosecutors were able to achieve some requests from the families of the victims, including consecutive life sentences for Mays. Prosecutors celebrated after the hearing, while noting that justice is “somewhat of an elusive concept” in such cases.

Prosecutors say justice an ‘elusive concept’ CNN has reached out to McCamic for comment on Tuesday’s sentence.
