A teenager who stabbed his grandmother to death and seriously injured his grandfather as they lay in bed in Hull will claim he was suffering a psychotic episode due to his use of the drug M-Cat, a prosecutor has told a jury.
Hull Crown Court was told there was no dispute that Lewis Dale, 17, killed Irene Dale, 78, and seriously injured her husband Allan, 80, with a kitchen knife. Adrian Strong, prosecuting, described how Dale attacked his grandparents as they were in bed at their home in Summergangs Road in April.
Mr Strong said Dale was a mephedrone or "meow meow or M-Cat" user. It used to be called a "legal high" but was outlawed in 2010 and is now a class B controlled drug. Users claim it provokes euphoria and heightened energy but there were also reports of restlessness, anxiety, confusion and psychosis.
