Rapist detained

Derry McBean, 31, of Deptford, south-east London, a schizophrenic who raped three women after spending periods in psychiatric units, was sent to Broadmoor indefinitely by an Old Bailey judge. A psychiatrist told the hearing that McBean had effective medication but failed to take it.
