(WatchDogReport.org) – Sometime between July 19 and July 20 of 2017, hospital worker Reta Mays administered a fatal dose of insulin to veteran Robert Edge Sr. Over the next 11 months, she gave 6 other veterans doses of insulin that killed them at the Louis A. Johnson VA Medical Center in West Virginia. She was later arrested and pleaded guilty to the murders; now, she has finally been sentenced.
On May 11, US District Judge Thomas Kleeh, an appointee of Donald Trump, gave Mays seven consecutive life sentences for the horrific murders. The judge read each victim’s name before he handed down sentencing, saying she made decisions that “she was not entitled to make” by weaponizing medication and using it “as an instrument of death.” Kleeh called the defendant the “worst kind” of monster.
VA serial killer Reta Mays has received the maximum sentence of 7 consecutive life sentences plus 20 years for the murder of seven veterans and the attempted murder of one at the Clarksburg VAMC.

The families of five of the victims gave impact statements before the sentencing. Robert Edge Jr., the son of her first victim, said that Mays’ actions have “deprived nine grandkids and eight great-grandkids” of ever knowing the love of his father. None of the families said they’re willing to forgive Mays for her heinous actions, and not a single person can blame them.
