A schizophrenic who had escaped diagnosis for nearly a year killed a neighbour in a knife attack, an Old Bailey court heard yesterday.

Tolga Kurter, 20, was sent to Rampton high security hospital indefinitely after admitting manslaughter while suffering from diminished responsibility. His plea of not guilty to murder was accepted by the court.

While suffering from "bizarre delusions", Kurter had stabbed Nicholas Boyd, a taxi driver, near their homes in north London in April this year - believing his victim was another man.
