Schizophrenic ruled insane in killing of Air Force veteran

Posted: Updated:

COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo. (AP) - A Missouri man who randomly killed an Air Force veteran before barging into a different house declaring, "I am here to slaughter the lambs," has been found not guilty by reason of insanity.

The Gazette reports a judge on Monday found Timothy Hagins was legally insane at the time of the August 2016 killing and subsequent attacks. Hagins, a schizophrenic who turned violent after going off his medications, will serve an indefinite commitment at Colorado Mental Health Institute Pueblo.

Timothy Hagins had been treated for schizophrenia for more than a decade. He exhibited no violent tendencies, and had no criminal history, prior to killing retired Air Force Tech Sgt. David Stechman and terrorizing a family in Elbert.
