1990 190e engine stopped while driving

I am on a road trip with a friend who purchased a 1990 Mercedes 190E with 120,000 miles. We drove over 800 miles with no problems, warning signs, lights coming on or indication of concern. The wiper started to slow as if it would stop and the car turned off. We coasted to the side of the road. Tried to start it again and all there was just a click click sound without any turn over. We called and had it towed to a mechanic. The mechanic jumped started the car, tested the battery and the alternator and couldn't find anything wrong. So we headed out again and within 10 minutes of driving it did the same thing. The wiper this time actually stopped first. When getting towed and the wiper turned off the wiper moved to the middle of the windshield. It is now again back at the mechanic shop. Any ideas what is wrong?
