Wisconsin man ordered to lifetime of state supervision

MILWAUKEE (AP) — A Wisconsin judge has ordered a lifetime of state supervision for a man who was found guilty of murdering a friend but was also suffering from a mental disease.

Dane County Circuit Judge Mario White ordered that Ted J. Bruno, 53, be placed in a state mental institution indefinitely, Wisconsin State Journal reported.

A jury last month found Bruno guilty of first-degree intentional homicide for stabbing a friend to death in 2017. But the jury also found Bruno was suffering from a mental disease at the time.

Psychiatrists who testified during the trial said Bruno had unspecified schizophrenic spectrum disorder causing psychotic symptoms.
