A killer who walked to a nearby prison and admitted cutting the throat of his disabled neighbour has been sentenced to an indefinite hospital order.

Daha Mohammed, 51, of Abbots Close, Thamesmead, appeared at the Old Bailey on Monday where he pleaded guilty to manslaughter on the grounds of diminished responsibility.

A murder investigation was launched after police were called by ambulance crews to Abbotts Close, at around 2pm, on June 15 after receiving reports of a man with stab wounds.

Colin Greenway, 56, who was wheelchair bound, was pronounced dead at the scene. A post mortem examination revealed the cause of death as inceised wounds to the throat.

Mohammed was arrested on the same day having walked to HMP Belmarsh, where he admitted to killing Mr Greenway. He was charged with murder on June 16.
