Mentally ill woman hospitalized

A MENTALLY ill woman who stabbed her mother to death was ordered to be hospitalized by the Xuhui District People’s Court.

The schizophrenic woman in her 60s, surnamed Liu, was living with her elderly mother, in her 80s, in a residential community in Xuhui District, the court said.

She stabbed her mother  with scissors on her face and head that led to her death in January.

Liu was caught by police but a local mental health center later confirmed that she was suffering from schizophrenia.

The center also found she had no previous criminal record and was not competent to stand trial.

The court feared that Liu could still attack others in the future. It therefore sought her family’s approval and ordered her to undergo involuntary hospitalization.
