This sentence is wrong. The correct one (i.e. the typical Romanian version) is
"Te omor în numele statului degeaba".
(edit: for non-natives, this post is a joke, don't take it grammatically. In Romanian "a sta degeaba" means "to waste the time" to "sit without doing anything" or "for free", "in vain" etc., and we have a lot of jokes that capitalize on the similarity of "stat"=government, country, state, versus "stat"=the process of sitting, staying, from the verb "a sta"=to sit, to lay, to do nothing, so my "sentence" could be roughly translated as "I kill you in the name of wasting the time", which is kinda funny for a native Romanian)
One rarely gets such a sentence when learning a language. :)
I absolutely love it!
