LEGAL proceedings against a man who stabbed his aunt 116 times have been stopped after a prosecutor agreed that he was suffering from severe schizophrenia at the time of the brutal killing.
Tibor S., 37, from Banská Bystrica in December last year attacked his 52-year-old aunt during a visit to his grandmother's house.
Tibor, who court psychiatrists discovered had been suffering from schizophrenia for years, struck out at his aunt with a kitchen knife, stabbing her 116 times in her face, head, neck, arms, chest and hand.
The prosecution has asked for Tibor to be given psychiatric treatment at a state facility.
