A HANWELL man was today (16) sentenced for the manslaughter of his father after a three-week trial at Isleworth Crown Court.

Leon Joseph, 37, of Elfwine Road, was found guilty of killing 60–year-old Glenroy Joseph by reason of diminished responsibility.

He was also found guilty of two counts of assault and one of actual bodily harm.

He was sentenced to a hospital order and restriction order under the Mental Health Act, both without limitation

Police were called to Leon Joseph’s flat in Elfwine Road shortly before 6pm in July last year after neighbours reported hearing shouting.

Officers discovered Glenroy Joseph dead and a murder investigation was launched.

Leon Joseph had already left the scene and discarded the clothes he was wearing in a neighbour’s wheelie bin.

He ran to Glade Lane, where a woman called 999 after finding him lying on the ground.

Joseph gave paramedics a false home address and refused to answer questions about dried blood near his eye.

He was taken to hospital but left A&E and, over a period of 15 minutes, carried out attacks on random members of the public.

Joseph ran from police until he came to Southall Fire Station where he made his way on to the roof and stayed there until the next morning, when he was arrested.
