The judge sentenced Patrick to death. Then Patrick accidentally caused the judge's death.

Had Patrick just been tried? and convicted? of a capital offence?
Judge: human? adult? male or female?
Patrick?

Better check - is Patrick a human being? And did this sentencing take place in an actual court of law?

Same Patrick? Same judge?

Did Patrick also die?

Something he didn't do? Something he had already done?
Was the judge frightened?
Might Patrick have done the same thing had he not been sentenced to death?
Did he try to escape?

Did Patrick do something the judge didn't expect? Is there a relevant time lapse between Patricks conviction and the judges death? Was Patrick rightly convicted?

Was he wrongly released? was he "pardoned" by someone other than the judge? like a bailiff? is this relevant?

Was the Judge himself convicted of anything? which meant he ended up in jail? Did he die in a hospital? outside somewhere?

Was Patrick to be electrocuted?
Was his execution actually attempted?
Did it cause something to happen to the electricity supply elsewhere? which resulted in the judge's death?
