STAMFORD, Conn. — A Stamford man charged with murdering his mother after police said he violently beat her will face judges next week as part of his insanity plea for the 2015 crime, according to the Stamford Advocate.

Timothy Anderson, 44, was charged with beating his 76-year-old mother Maryann in March 2015 after she confronted him about not taking his medication, according to police. She shouted for his older brother John to call the police, and the two brothers fought for a few minutes before Timothy Anderson fled from the house, police said. He was arrested a short time later.

Maryann Anderson received severe brain injuries and was placed in a coma, but later died from her injuries, according to police. Anderson had been charged with beating her, and was later charged with her murder.

He was recently found competent to stand trial , the Stamford Advocate reported. He will face a panel of three judges next week to determine his sanity, and his lawyer plans to call a psychiatrist who has treated Anderson as the only witness, according to the Stamford Advocate.

The psychiatrist will testify that Anderson did not understand the consequences of his actions, his lawyer told the Stamford Advocate. If found not guilty by reason of insanity, he would be sent to the Whiting Forensic Division at Connecticut Valley Hospital, the Stamford Advocate said.
