A man with schizophrenia who killed his mother and sister two days after he was released from a mental health unit has been jailed for life, to serve a minimum of twelve years.
Twenty-four year old John Jenkin had tried to drown himself in a river two days before he attacked his mother Alice McMeekin and sister Kathryn Jenkin with an axe at their home in Millom in Cumbria.
Preston Crown Court heard Jenkin was suffering from a schizophrenic disorder at the time of the offences last June.
He's to serve his sentence at Ashworth Secure Hospital on Merseyside.
