ROCHESTER, N.Y. - A nursing supervisor enraged at two co-workers who accused him of sexual harassment drew a life sentence yesterday for killing a nurse and a bystander during a rampage that left four dead.

“You’re a very frightening . . . very disturbing person,’’ Judge Frank Geraci said as he imposed the maximum penalty of life without parole on Frank Garcia. He is already serving a life term for a shooting later that day.

Investigators say Garcia targeted nurses Mary Silliman and Kimberly Glatz after their harassment complaints led to him being fired from successive jobs.

Garcia killed Silliman, 23, and Randal Norman, 41, a motorist who intervened when he saw her being roughed up in the hospital parking lot.

He then killed Glatz, 38, and her husband at their home after holding them captive for three hours while their children cowered upstairs.
