His father didn't want to discuss ending his life seriously with anyone else.'The defendant said he wanted to help his father carry out his wishes.He said he decided he would help his father on the Tuesday but do it on the following night, Wednesday, August 26.'Mr Boyce explained that Desai told police that during the day his father got up as normal at about 9.15am while he himself had spent much of the day gardening, before going off to the gym in the late afternoon. 'He said he did not feel anything during the day about what he was going to do that night,' he added.'They ate at about 8.15pm in front of the TV.She matched with 27-year-old Robert Woods on the popular dating app. Joseph's hospital, although the hospital says he is on administrative leave.
After that his father asked him if he would help him.'Mr Boyce told the court how Desai claimed he had stolen the morphine from work in May.
He said: 'According to the defendant he stole the morphine and insulin days before reaching the decision with his father. Death happened the same day morphine and insulin was administered.'The subsequent post mortem examination on his father revealed he had 1,038mg of free morphine per litre of blood in his system when he died.'Concentrations as low as 50ml can give rise to toxicity for someone who does not normally take morphine,' added Mr Boyce.'Some 100ml to 500ml in someone who does take phosphine can cause death.
His father had lived in Zambia before moving to stay with family in Zimbabwe and then eventually moving in with his son in the village of Dockenfield in February 2015.
Mr Boyce told the jury that a 20ml bottle of concentrated morphine solution Oramorph was ordered by the Vaughan James Pharmacy, in Farnham - where Desai worked - on February 20, 2015 and delivered the next day.'Pharmacy records show the defendant was the responsible person on duty on February 20 when the bottle was ordered and was the responsible person when the bottle of Oramorph was delivered,' said Mr Boyce.'This bottle is not something the pharmacy normally ordered, it's very strong.
'Mr Desai admits that he is guilty of this offence, and he has pleaded guilty to the offence of assisting suicide.
However he denies that he is guilty of murder.' Mr Boyce told the court that there was no evidence to support Desai's claims about helping to fulfill his father's wishes.'(Father Desai) suffered no debilitating or disabling symptoms,' he said.
The jury has been told he admits assisting in a suicide and two charges of theft by an employee.
William Boyce QC, prosecuting, said Desai at first hoped to disguise the killing as a natural death and went through the facade of making his father breakfast the next morning, which he left out for him.
When he returned home from work at the pharmacy he once owned, he made the fake 'discovery' that his father had died in his sleep and phoned 999.
