A man who stabbed his girlfriend in the belief that she had come from an internet game has been detained in a mental hospital indefinitely.
Christopher Moxon, 24, from Burgess Hill in West Sussex, claimed that he and Natalie Scott, 21, were involved in an internet game and that she had been sent to kill him.
According to BBC reports, Lewes Crown Court heard that he cut her throat and stabbed her 25 times last February.
Moxon pleaded guilty to manslaughter on the grounds of diminished responsibility.
Judge Richard Brown was told that the defendant had been suffering from severe mental delusions prior to the attack, and told detectives that he had to kill Scott to save himself.
He also believed that the Russians had made five attempts to assassinate him.
The couple had lived together at Scott's flat until three weeks before her death.
