A man who killed his wife and two young children in 2006 has been found not criminally responsible because of a mental disorder.
Huc Minh Chau used a meat cleaver to kill his wife, three-year-old daughter and five-month-old son.
The court was told that Chau suffered from depression and schizophrenia and killed his family because he believed they were possessed by evil spirits.
Defence lawyer Peter Say said Chau had coped with his illness for nearly 20 years, but in the six months leading up to the slayings, he began to suffer from hallucinations and delusions.
According to Say, Chau complained to his family doctor who did not increase his medication.
Chau will remain in the Whitby Mental Health Centre.
The Ontario Review Board will ultimately decide whether to release him or if he should remain indefinitely in the psychiatric facility.
