The inquest into the death of an 81-year-old man has heard how his grandson, who was also his killer, was a suspect in an attempted robbery involving a machete 2 months earlier.
William Barnard pleaded guilty to the manslaughter of John McGrath on the grounds of demolished responsibility in 2010.
He had previously been diagnosed as having schizophrenia.
