A review board has heard that an Alberta man who killed his mother because he thought she was possessed by Satan is making good progress but still requires close monitoring.
Alexander James Thorpe, who is 21, was arrested in January after showing up at an Airdrie, Alta., car dealership nude, except for a gold cross around his neck, covered in blood.
He told first responders that he was told by Jesus to kill Satan, who he said had taken over his mother’s body.
Thorpe pleaded not guilty to second-degree murder in Melanie Lowen’s death and was found not criminally responsible last month.
