A man who stabbed his mother to death in Essex has been detained under the Mental Health Act after pleading guilty to manslaughter.
Javid Ahmed, 26, attacked Amina Begum in Fambridge Close in Maldon in March.
He pleaded guilty to manslaughter on the grounds of diminished responsibility.
Ahmed could now spend the rest of his life in a mental health hospital after being given an indeterminate hospital order under the Mental Health Act after being deemed a risk to the public.
When he is judged to be better, he must be given a judicial overview and signed off by the Secretary of State before being released.
Mrs Begum, 47, from Maldon, Essex, was found injured in the street but died at the scene, despite the efforts of paramedics.
A post mortem examination established she had suffered 37 separate knife wounds including a fatal injury to her heart.
Ahmed was arrested at the family home and charged with murder.
