Faith, I must leave thee, love, and shortly too.

Why does the villain murder the king in this play when the king clearly believes he’s dying? Why doesn’t he just wait a little bit? Why throw fratricide into the mix when the natural course of events will lead to the same result?
Does the villain not realize that the king is already at death’s door?
I guess murderers aren’t generally known for their patience.
