Woman gives 73-year-old lover fatal dose of sleeping pills to 'avoid his sex games' before dumping body in the trash
While the 62-year-old German woman allegedly wanted the pensioner to just 'be quiet and go to sleep', she failed to account for the alcohol and Viagra already in his system
A German woman was jailed for seven years after she gave her 73-year-old partner a lethal dose of sleeping pills in order to avoid his sex games. After his death, she allegedly left his body in a dustbin to rot for almost a month before it was discovered, Daily Mail reports.
The 62-year-old former nurse, identified as Silvia M., said she gave her lover "perhaps four sleeping pills" and then left his body in the trash for around three weeks.
Silvia had accidentally killed Heinz P. with triazolam after he constantly pestered her for sex, a court in Salzburg, Austria, ruled.
While Silvia denied an intention to kill him, she admitted to giving the pensioner the pills in June 2017 so that he would "be quiet and go to sleep". The 73-year-old victim's sex games had apparently become too much for her to bear, she told the court.
The alleged killer failed to account for the quantity of Viagra and the amount of alcohol consumed by Heinz, according to the indictment. The deadly concoction enhanced the effects of the sleeping pills on the elderly man's body, according to reports.
Silvia, who has a lengthy criminal record in Germany and hails from Berlin, found Heinz dead in the bed the following day. She chose not to inform the police about her since she was being sought by German cops in connection with a number of fraud cases. She feared that she would be arrested and extradited back to Germany.
After realizing that Heinz was no longer breathing, she dragged his body to his garage, wrapped it in plastic, and dumped the corpse in a rubbish bin. Silvia was arrested on suspicion of murder later that month after the body was discovered in the trash.
Meanwhile, the number of tablets given to Heinz was sufficient to be toxic, a pharmacological expert said. However, authorities are yet to establish the exact cause of death considering the corpse was found in an advanced state of decay. It was also understood later that Silvia had sold Heinz's car and used his credit card during the estimated three weeks in which the body was left to rot in the garbage bin.
