Maria Karaiskos KC led the prosecution team in this harrowing and disturbing case of a young man who killed his mother whilst hallucinating through drugs. Expert evidence concluded that his mental state was extremely disturbed due to his use of ketamine, cannabis, MDMA and possibly cocaine. His ability to know what he was doing, to form a rational judgment and to exercise self-control were substantially impaired.

He killed his mother because he thought that she was a demon and they were in hell – yet another horrific illustration of the dangerous and irreversible side effects of recreational drugs.

News of the case was published in The Evening Standard, The Independent, The Daily Mail and in regional publications across the UK.
