    From last month:

    Socrates Tamvakis not guilty of murdering mum due to mental impairment

    http://www.heraldsun.com.au/news/law...8a501f587a9190

    A man who bashed his mumís head in with a rolling pin before stabbing her to death has been found not guilty of the crime because heís mentally unwell.

    Tamvakis will reappear in court in December where he will be ordered to undergo treatment at the high security forensic mental health hospital Thomas Embling.
