EDMONTON — Court documents show that two medical doctors who assessed an Edmonton man just after he killed his mother. They believed he was experiencing an acute cannabis-induced psychosis.
Jason Glenn Dickout pleaded guilty to manslaughter and was scheduled to be sentenced Monday in the death of 53-year-old Kathy Dickout. Whose physique was discovered with stab wounds in her property on April 17, 2017.
An agreed statement of information says the 33-year-old man had visited his parents for Easter that evening, and smoked dried marijuana with his sister.
Just just after midnight, the sister known as 911 and told the operator Dickout had stabbed their mother repeatedly and that he was screaming “like a crazy particular person.”
More assessments of Dickout have been requested to identify irrespective of whether he was suffering from a mental disorder. They hadn’t been completed, so the sentencing was delayed.
Court heard there are only 3 medical doctors who can conduct such assessments. Their capacity is about a dozen files per month.
When police responded to the 911 get in touch with at the property, officers discovered Dickout naked beneath the waist. His mother was discovered dead in the kitchen laying in a pool of blood.
A six-inch kitchen knife was discovered beside her, along with a pair of men’s pyjamas.
Dickout will remain in custody till his subsequent court look.
