Mental patient sentenced to life in prison for meat-cleaver killing of NYC psychotherapist

A schizophrenic has been sentenced to life in prison without parole for killing a New York City psychotherapist with a meat cleaver.

David Tarloff was sentenced Friday. He was convicted of first-degree murder in March in a case long confounded by questions about his mental health.

Tarloff never disputed killing psychologist Kathryn Faughey (FAW'-hee) in February 2008. His defense argued he was too mentally ill to know that what he was doing was wrong.

The Manhattan district attorney's office said Tarloff knew what he was doing in attacking Faughey after she confronted him in her Upper East Side office. Tarloff had gone there intending to rob her officemate.

One previous trial ended in a hung jury. Another stalled when Tarloff was found mentally unfit during jury selection.
