A prisoner has been detained in a secure facility after killing his Leicester inmate in the cell they shared.
73-year-old Alan Goode, from Wigston, Leicester, was found dead at HMP Lincoln early on the morning if Thursday 31st October 2013.
Krystoff Mroz, 36, was originally charged with murder, but during his trial jurors heard from medical experts that he was suffering from paranoid schizophrenia at the time of the attack and while he was responsible for Mr Goode’s death he had been affected by an "abnormality in mental functioning."
The jury at Stafford Crown Court returned a guilty verdict of manslaughter with diminished responsibility.
Speaking following the culmination of the case, Detective Inspector Helen Evans, the Senior Investigating Officer, Lincolnshire Police said: "I am satisfied with both the jury’s verdict and the Judge’s ruling because this is an appropriate outcome in this case, which has been truly tragic for all involved. Mroz will be detained in a secure establishment where he will not be a danger to anyone else and will also be given the treatment he needs."
