Coroner to assess body that nurse allegedly had sex with

Authorities are investigating a nurse who allegedly had sex with a corpse at a Sherman Oaks hospital, police said.

Alejandro Razo, 61, of Reseda, was arrested Sunday on a state Health and Safety Code violation, police said.

Razo, whose last name was initially released by authorities as Lazo, is free on $20,000 bail, according to Los Angeles County Sheriff's Department jail records.

The L.A. County coroner will perform an autopsy on the body, said Sgt. Ammon Williams of the Los Angeles Police Department. He said police are working in conjunction with the coroner’s office.

The findings could determine whether more charges would be filed, Williams said. 

The coroner's office declined to comment on the case, citing a security hold.

Razo is due in court Feb. 11, according to online records.
