Killer told to seek treatment

A man with mental illness who stabbed his neighbor to death was asked to undergo involuntary hospitalization, the Chongming District People’s Court said yesterday.

Prosecutors said the elderly man Zhao Pinsheng, who was diagnosed with schizophrenia 19 years ago, stabbed his neighbor Li Shisheng to death with a knife. Zhao’s  granddaughter witnessed the incident which happened on June 22. Zhao was detained after he confessed to the crime.

Zhao said Li visited him on that fateful day and they were chatting in the kitchen when he had a seizure.

He grabbed a knife and stabbed Li as he suspected him of stealing things from his house, prosecutors said.
