An elderly woman who killed her husband has been found not guilty of murder due to mental incompetence.
The court heard Lucia Colella attacked her husband at their South Australian home in July 2014.
It’s alleged the 75-year-old was psychotic when she struck her husband with two knives and an axe.

Today’s Suspreme Court ruling means Colella will be subjected to a lifetime psychiatric supervision order.
She remains on home detention bail ahead of a hearing in February 2016.
