A man who admitted attacking his mother was warned to expect a hospital order.

Kristoffer Jarvis-Foster, 27, pleaded guilty at a hearing on Thursday to attempting to wound the woman with intent to cause her grievous bodily harm.

The attack happened at a house in Fewcott, Oxfordshire, on February 25.

Jarvis-Foster, of Fewcott, near Bicester, entered his plea after psychiatrists ruled him fit to stand trial.

Judge Michael Gledhill QC remanded the defendant into a secure hospital ahead of a sentencing hearing on November 17. He said: “I am not giving you any promises as to the outcome but it is likely this will be a hospital order case.”

A hospital order requires a defendant to get treatment at a secure psychiatric hospital. Typically, they won’t be released until a doctor decides they are not a danger to the public.
