A 27-year-old man from Sighetu-Marmatiei has killed his 64-year-old father with a hammer and inflicted his 62-year-old mother several serious injuries.
The woman has undergone several surgeries, and her condition is critical.
The incident took place on May 14 in the victims' home. The young man returned home 6 months ago from England, and the exact causes of the incident are unknown until now. The police is analyzing all the circumstances of the case.
The neighbors were the ones who alerted the police after they saw the young man in the street with blood traces and repeating "I killed them."
According to libertatea.ro, the killer had recently been admitted to a neuropsychiatry hospital, but the investigators believe that he was lucid at the time of the crime.
The young man would have told the police: "Yes, I killed them! So what? That's it!". He will then be subjected to a psychiatric test that will determine accurately whether he was aware of what he had done or not.
The assassin has four brothers, and he is the youngest of them. If found guilty, the young man risks many years in jail.
