Emmanuel Kalejaiye, 21, inflicted more than 40 stab wounds on his mother Tolu Kalejaiya’s upper body, when he turned the knife on her at their Wickford home last September.
The prosecution alleged Kalejaiye had planned to commit the ‘perfect murder’, by killing the 44-year-old before impersonating her to allow himself precious time to dispose of her body.
But a jury of seven men and five women found the Essex University student not guilty of murder, but guilty of manslaughter by reason of diminished responsibility, due to mental health issues.
The verdict came following a two-week trial at Chelmsford Crown Court.
Judge Christopher Ball QC said: ‘The evidence shows the defendant is capable of a very deliberate and calculated act of supreme violence.
‘If as a paranoid schizophrenic he is capable of this, he may present a very significant danger to anyone who upsets him for many years to come.
‘I am keen to see the extent to which paranoid schizophrenia will underscore the danger he poses to others in the future to assess a proper sentence.’
Judge Ball requested a full psychiatric report into the danger Kalejaiye could be to the public ahead of sentencing in June.
