Hospital order for boy, 17, who stabbed mother in Woking

A 17-year-old boy charged with the attempted murder of his mother after she was stabbed repeatedly has been given a hospital order.

A jury at Kingston Crown Court agreed the boy carried out the act at a property in Woking, Surrey, in November as he was not fit to enter a plea.

He was given a hospital order after the court heard psychiatric evidence.

The teenager, from Wallington in south London, cannot be named for legal reasons.
