A male nurse in the US has been arrested after allegedly committing a sex act on a dead woman.
Father-of-two Alejandro Razo, 61, was detained by security guards at the Sherman Oaks Hospital in Los Angeles on Sunday over the incident.
Los Angeles Police Department Lt. Andy Neiman said officers were told there was an "indication that a deceased patient had somehow been violated by an employee of the hospital," CBS reports.
How Razo was caught remains unclear but he has reportedly been charged with necrophilia as well as violating a health and safety code.
He has been released on a $20,000 bail and faces up to three years in jail if convicted.
The hospital has refused to comment on the incident.
