An Andreas man who killed his mother has been sentenced to an indefinite hospital order.

On January 17, 2021, James Hywel Price strangled and killed his mother at their home address in Andreas.

Mr Price was arrested at the address and admitted what he had done to the investigating officers.

He was charged and since then has been held at a specialist hospital in the UK.

On April 22, he pleaded guilty to manslaughter and was today sentenced to an indefinite hospital order with restrictions.

The Senior Investigating Officer, DI Michelle McKillop, said: ‘The unlawful killing of Mrs Price is extremely sad and upsetting.

‘It is apparent that James was suffering a significant mental illness that was undiagnosed and untreated.

‘This is an absolute tragedy and my thoughts are with the whole family at this difficult time.’
