A man with a troubled history has been found not criminally responsible for allegedly assaulting his mom.
Kirk Dean Darroch was charged with assault and uttering threats in connection with an attack on a woman at her Oak River home on Dec. 16.
It was alleged that a 34-year-old man, who claimed to be Gloria Vanderbilt, told his mother that the house now belonged to him and the Hells Angels.
He then allegedly assaulted his mom, called her "da man" and groped her in an attempt to determine her gender. He'd also previously threatened to kill his parents.
A psychatrist later determined that Darroch, who has remained in custody since his arrest, may be schizophrenic and that he wasn't fit to stand trial without treatment.
On Monday, based on an agreement between Crown and defence counsel, Judge Donovan Dvorak also ruled that Darroch could not be held criminally responsible by reason of a mental disorder.
He remains in custody pending a hearing by the province's Criminal Code Review Board.
Darroch is considered a high risk offender. He previously served five years in prison for stabbing a woman in the neck while high on drugs in July 2003.
