Mr Morrison who attacked his mother in Glasgow last August has been detained at Carstaits psychiatric hospital. Mr Morrison pled guilty to attempted murder at the High Court in Glasgow last month and sentence was deferred for reports. Lord Mulholland made it clear to the court that he was certain Mr Morrison, who is 20 years old was suffering from a mental disorder.
It was heard in open court that Mr Morrison always had a good relationship with his mum growing up but on the occasion in question he had appeared with a knife and stabbed her numerous times before returning to Edinburgh for university. Mr Morrison eventually called the police after leaving his mother bleeding. The case has been continued until May for further reports to be prepared at the hospital.
