Iolan Brandon W. Callahan, accused of the first-degree murder of his mother, Lucretia, in January 2017, has been found not guilty because of his mental state at the time the crime was committed.
Allen County District Judge Daniel Creitz subsequently ordered Callahan, 36, be kept at a state mental hospital in Larned for ongoing treatment and safekeeping.
The ruling was handed down during a bench trial Dec. 3.
