Mentally ill man deemed fit to answer murder charge


A man diagnosed with schizophrenia was deemed fit to stand trial for murder in the High Court today.

Lenmore Horsford is a patient at the Clarevue Psychiatric Hospital, where he has been since 2010 when jurors ruled he was unfit to answer to the murder charge.

The man’s mother told the court, her 32-year-old son can live with her if he is discharged from the hospital on bail ahead of the trial.
