(Scroll down for video) A man was arrested on charges of murder after allegedly shooting his neighbor because God told him that he was a vampire, prosecutors in California said.
The District Attorney’s Office said that 51-year-old Mark Andrews of Atascadero, committed murder when he shot 52-year-old Colleen Barga-Milbury.
However, Andrews has pleaded not guilty by reason of insanity.
Andrews claims that he suffers from a mental health illness and he was hospitalized about eight times.
Andrews has schizophrenia and suffers from delusions, such as thinking he was a werewolf. Andrews said that God had commanded him to kill Barga-Milbury because he was a vampire.
Prosecutors claim that several people who had interactions with Andrews before and after the murder did not detect any psychotic behavior, including police officers, jail staff members and a psychiatrist.
A jury found the defendant guilty of first-degree murder.
