    1. if proven by the defence that he is suffering from mental infirmity, he wont be guilty on the grounds of insanity. He will be sent to an asylum.

    2. The family should have kept a close watch on him always. He's old and also demented. Pray for the soul of the departed. And hope he doesn't spend the rest of his life in prison. So sad.

    7. Confirming the incident, public relations officer, Imo state police command, Orlando Ikeokwu said that preliminary investigations revealed that after killing his wife, the 82-year old ran away until he was arrested by the officers of the command after a tip off.

      ** My question is this: WHY did he run away if he truly had no recollection of what he did?

    10. First two things you take away from a person living with Dementia are flammable and sharps. They can use that to hurt themselves or somebody else. This is so sad.

    11. insanity is not just when someome takes off his clothe and starts running in the street, there are other forms of insanity. Legally if the person lacks the capacity to understand his actions,lack the capacity to know he ought not to do what he is doing,lacks capacity to know what he is doing the he might be insane.if what he had is dementia,then its a mental infirmity which is insanity

    13. This man may have dementia but hes also suffering from mental illness. I know someones dad with dementia;and his major thing is forgetful,confusion,inability to take care of himself and later he wondered off one day. Never heard of violence from him,now he is even so quiet and lost in thot most times. This was a former jovial brilliant man. He is now like a baby they have to keep an eye on.
      This mans illness is more dan dementia pls. It is very possible to have various mental illness. You could have depression and at same time suffer from pyscosis.
      You have to also consider,did they have a marriage with history of violence and DV. Was he normally abusive.
      If he was out of his senses totally,why did he run???
      Not sayn ppl with dementia cant be violent...anyone with mental illness is unpredictable most times.

    14. People with some kinds of dementia can get violent sometimes. But I haven’t seen them get so violent that they kill. They just usually get angry really easy and hit people or destroy stuff.

      Delete
  2. Dementia is the loss of cognitive functioning—thinking, remembering, and reasoning.

    Dementia does not mean one becomes violent, it's. They may become verbally or physically aggressive but not this level of violence.

    5. My grandfather had dementia and had to be restrained. He had always been a gentle person. The change was just awful to watch. You know nothing of this dreadful disease and it is best if you don't say anything.

    7. Hmmm,I've seen a person with Dementia, wasnt an emotionally pleasant sight. They do sometimes get violent and aggressive in their state of confusion

    8. Ms A,
      These early signs of dementia are:
      - Memory loss
      - Difficulty planning or solving problems
      - Difficulty doing familiar tasks
      - Being confused about time or place
      - Challenges understanding visual information
      - Problems speaking or writing.
      - Misplacing things
      - Poor judgment or decision-making.

      Please and please, where is VIOLENCE on the list. If dementia made people violent, you think those that have wouldn't have been restrained to prevent such?

      Your ignorance is embarrassing.

    9. What are the 7 Stages of Dementia?

      Stage 1: No impairment.
      Stage 2: Very mild cognitive decline.
      Stage 3: Mild cognitive decline.
      Stage 4: Moderate cognitive decline.
      Stage 5: Moderately severe cognitive decline.
      Stage 6: Severe cognitive decline

      Also known as middle dementia or moderately severe Alzheimer’s disease, this stage will find your loved one requiring help for Activities of Daily Living (ADL’s) such as using the bathroom or eating. Your loved one may also experience difficulty sleeping, increased paranoia or delusions, anxiety, and difficulty recognizing loved ones.

      Stage 7: Very severe cognitive decline

    11. True, patients with dementia are not violent. Maybe he was suffering from other mental illness. Definitely not dementia

      Delete
    12. I work with people battling Dementia,and they can only get aggressive when you challenge them,the question should be what happened before the stabbing occurred? If the wife was struggling with him,then yes he can kill her as he may see her as a stranger and was acting out of self defence. Dementia has many faces,no 2 cases are the same,everyday is a new chapter and so one cannot always compare. May she rest in peace

      Delete
    13. People with dementia can become psychotic and with psychosis can become violent and need to be on antipsychotics.

    14. I join Ms. A to say Stop it!!!! Most diseases have a spectrum. As they say in medicine, you never say never. Dementia can and does present with violence. Please be guided.

    So will he be charged to court for murder? dementia or not? i wanna know

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. He will be charged to court for murder,but the defense counsel can raise a defence of Insanity and if proven beyond reasonable doubt. Then he wont be guilty of muder on the grounds of insanity, because he lacked the capacity to know what he was doing, control his actions and also didn't know that he ought not to the Act. He will be sent to an asylum at the discretion of the President.

    2. Insanity maybe, but Dementia no. People, educate yourselves!

  6. this is very pathetic..dementia is real..he probably thought the wife was something or someone else... i hope he won't be jailed ..they should pity him and rehabilitate him ..its sad

    1. That's how one dude butchered his mother thinking she was a leopard that came into the house. He was so deep in that belief even the police pitied him. He had a court ordered psych evaluation that showed dementia. CT Scan of his brain was done and tendered in court to show massive brain cell loss

      Delete
    2. Aggression in Dementia is usually triggered by something, not just a desire to cause someone pain. Factors such as physical discomfort or pain, being in an unfamiliar environment or situation, and even poor communication can all trigger aggression.

      He is in the later stages of dementia.

      He will not be jailed. He does not have mental capacity. But kept away from the people until it is controlled.

      Delete
  7. Of course, the old man is suffering from Dementia!

    May God rest the soul of his wife. I really feel for him, because his wife is definitely the only person he trust and now, she's gone.

    Double pains for the family.

    These sick people need a specialist to manage them.

    5. Mrs A is right. You people should learn to read and understand. Dementia is complex and scientists are still doing research. Someone with dementia can be violent because they can feel a stranger is trying to attack them due to memory loss. Geez stop attacking people unnecessarily.

      You guys know nothing about Dementia. Going to Google πŸ™„πŸ™„πŸ™„

      You think your answer lies on Google...

      Stop showing your ignorant self here. You're probably one very bittered human being that knows nothing about health issues.

    6. Tell them Ms. A. Google that you will check for a simple symptom and the search results popping up may be showing you that you are dying in the next second. What im trying to say is that Google is not always the answer.

    7. Na wao. Google is now a Consultant Psychiatist. And you're insulting Ms A while blatantly displaying your Google inspired ignorance. Jisike.

    8. My research area is in Alzheimer's disease and dementia. I don't understand why you are attacking Ms. A for stating accurate information. Google is not your answer, scholarly articles provide more accurate information.
      There are different types of dementia and sometimes dementia presents with irritability or aggression. This is why when doing a safety assessment in the home of people who have been diagnosed with a type of dementia, you have to make sure sharp objects are not within reach so they do not hurt themselves or others.
      Case in point CTE is a type of dementia, Aaron Hernandez was a NFL player whose violence led to the death of some people, after his death, a biopsy was conducted and they found severe atrophy of the brain, leading to the conclusion that CTE may have accounted for his violent behavior.

      Stories from his immediate family has it that Pa T.C.Okere though has dementia which his family has been managing did not kill his wife as carried by social media.The couple lost their son and his burial preparations are ongoing.On that faithful sunday,their 2 caregivers were away for church service when armed robbers gained entry into their home,probably to cart away money and things for the burial. Mama Okere tried to resist their entry/mission which resulted in their stabbing her to death.Meanwhile,Pa T.C.was in the house but did not know what happened.He was said to have told visitors that mama was asleep.Right now their son's corpse is still in the morgue.Its just too much for one family.May their souls RIPP,πŸ™.

  10. At a minimum, this is manslaughter.

  11. He should have been placed in a facility from the moment it was known that he was dangerous to those around him, if any of this is true. Some dementia sufferers do indeed become violent and dangerous once you are no longer safe you need to put them in an institution.
