A 20-year-old young man killed his mother with a stab in the throat on Thursday in the family apartment located in the 17th arrondissement of Paris, reports Le Parisien.
The victim, aged 57, had argued with his son without the reason for the dispute being known. The young man then grabbed a knife and hit his mother in the throat.
Hospitalized, the mother of the family died of her injuries.
Known to the police to suffer from psychiatric problems
The suspect was arrested by police and taken into custody. A doctor-psychiatrist, in charge of examining him, affirmed that his psychological state was not compatible with the police custody regime.
The young man was then transferred to a psychiatric hospital.
He was known to the police to suffer from psychiatric problems, officials having already intervened during a crisis of the young man.
