Son who battered mum to death with hammer hid mental health relapse in pandemic

A son who beat his mum to death managed to hide signs that his schizophrenia was getting worse in the weeks before he killed her.

And a court heard that changes to appointments as a result of the Covid-19 pandemic had made it harder for doctors to assess patients like Andrew Tinton.

The 55-year-old used a lump hammer to kill 82-year-old mum Rose Marie Tinton at their home.

Pathologists said she had been struck at least 30 times during the frenzied January 2021 attack.

He was detained in hospital under the mental health act earlier this week after admitting his guilt over the killing.

Our sister title the Liverpool Echo reports he later tried to take his own life.

Liverpool Crown Court heard on Thursday how Tinton had lived with mental health problems for almost 30 years and was receiving treatment for paranoid schizophrenia for much of that time.

Psychiatrists treating him said he appeared to be largely compliant with the medication and appointment regime set out for him by doctors and was coping with the condition.

That changed rapidly against the backdrop of the pandemic, as well as the death of his dad, who doctors said was a central figure in his life.

Nigel Power, QC, prosecuting, said Covid restrictions meant the appointments he normally would have attended in person were only held remotely.

Despite this, psychiatrists continued to monitor him over the phone, checking on his mental state and whether he was taking his medication.

At first, it appeared that he was coping fairly well but he told them he found lockdown restrictions difficult.

Then, in the summer, his dad was admitted to hospital with cancer. He was later discharged but died in August.

His death affected Tinton and his mum deeply, with a judge saying his dad

OSCEOLA COUNTY, Fla. - Earlier this year, surveillance video was released that showed the end of an apparent pursuit between a motorcycle rider and Osceola County deputies at a Wawa gas station in Florida, where a fire erupted shortly after.The 26-year-old motorcycle rider, later identified as John Beretta, was seriously burned, suffering third-degree burns to 75% of his body, and remains hospitalized, according to his attorneys Mark NeJame and Albert Yonfa (Nejame's office is also representing the victims in the unrelated deputy-involved shooting outside a Target in Kissimmee).Three deputies were hurt in the fire – two with minor injuries, and one with third-degree burns who also remains hospitalized, according to officials.On Wednesday, attorney Mark NeJame demanded the Florida Department of Law Enforcement open an investigation and for Osceola County Sheriff's Office to release more information about the February incident.Back in February, Osceola County Sheriff's Office said in a news release that the incident began after deputies received reports of people on motorcycles pointing guns at other vehicles. That reportedly led to a pursuit, which ended at the Wawa gas station.Credit: Family of John Beretta Beretta's attorney said the man was not pointing guns at other vehicles and was at the gas station to fill up on his way home. "Never had a gun that day.
