Man who killed his mother ordered confined another year


BEAUMONT - By Scott Lawrence:


A Southeast Texas man who killed his own mother will have to remain confined to a mental hospital for another year.


Millet Harrison, 64, killed his mother, Louise, at her home on Magnolia Street in Beaumont in 1994. Harrison stabbed her dozens of times, strangled her and mutilated his mother's body.


 A jury found him not guilty by reason of insanity and a judge ordered him confined to a Texas mental hospital. 


Harrison has repeatedly told the court system that he'll take his anti-psychotic medicine and wouldn't be a threat to society if a judge releases him. State District Judge Layne Walker disagreed. He ruled Monday that if Harrison were released he would be a threat to society.


The judge decided that Harrison needs in-patient treatment and should remain at a Texas mental hospital. Walker expressed concern that no one could ensure Harrison would take his medication.


By law, a court must review Harrison's status each year.
