A mentally ill homeless Bulgarian man has been sentenced to time in a psychiatric institution after he was convicted of an unthinkable and horrific crime committed back in 2011.

A man has been convicted of beheading a British woman with a knife inside a supermarket on a Spanish resort island and will be sentenced to spend time in a psychiatric institution.
A court in Santa Cruz on the Canary island of Tenerife found that Deyan Valentinov, a 20-year-old homeless Bulgarian man, had committed the act of murder but was not criminally responsible for his actions because he has acute paranoid schizophrenia.
Valentinov will later be sentenced at a later date to between 10 and 15 years in a secure psychiatric unit, court spokesman Gonzalo Perez said Friday.
Valentinov entered the store in May 2011, grabbed a 9-inch (23-centimeter) ham-slicing knife and repeatedly attacked Jennifer Mills-Westley before running into the street still holding her head.
We can’t help but wonder if this man will return and be sentenced to actual prison time in 15 years if he’s somehow “cured” of his mental illness during his time in the psychiatric facility because this was just an unimaginable way for someone to lose their life.
Do you think this is a fair punishment or does this woman’s family deserve more justice?
