The son of a woman murdered by a mentally ill man says that there needs to be major changes in mental health services to make sure dangerous people like his mother's killer are not released back into the community. 79 year old Eleftheria Demetriou was stabbed repeatedly by a man who'd been released from a mental health hospital just weeks before. Hakim Abdillahee had been treated for a personality disorder and was deemed "gentle and calm", but after he was released, he stopped taking his medicine and started using cannabis.
