A man is due in court today for the manslaughter of his flatmate last July.
30-year-old Karl Addo pleaded guilty at Bournemouth Crown Court on Monday for the manslaughter of 23-year-old Spanish student, Sergio Marquez.
Addo suffered years of mental illness which led to an extreme complex that he was being assaulted and injected with drugs.
He hit him with a cleaver and stabbed him in what was a "prolonged horrific and very violent attack".
Addo absconded from a mental health unit the day before a tribunal in October 2011 decided he should be sectioned.
He then "disappeared" from mental health services before he moved to Bournemouth in May 2012. He killed Mr Marquez, a hotel waiter, on July 17 last year - nine months later.
