BBC News - UK

A man has been found guilty of murdering his neighbour in a "savage and sustained" knife attack that lasted more than 40 minutes.

Paranoid schizophrenic Jeffrey Barry, 56, claimed victim Kamil Ahmad was a rapist and terrorist.

The brutal attack in Bristol in July 2016 ended with Barry slicing off the Kurdish refugee's penis.

Barry had denied murder but admitted manslaughter by diminished responsibility at Bristol Crown Court.

During the trial, the jury was told he was racist towards Mr Ahmad and had previously assaulted him.

A post-mortem examination found injuries to Mr Ahmad included 25 stab wounds to his face and eyes.

Weeks before the killing at Mr Ahmad's flat on Wells Road, Barry told police during a phone call that he thought Mr Ahmad was a rapist, a paedophile and a terrorist in Iraq.

Also in the lead-up to the death, Barry, of Wells Road, had been sectioned, treated at a psychiatric intensive care unit, transferred to an open ward and later released with medication after he promised not to drink or take drugs.
