Sun Prairie man accused in beheading to stay in institution

February 3, 2016

MADISON A Sun Prairie man accused of decapitating his mother with a large sword will remain at a mental health institution for now.

Forty-year-old Matthew Skalitzky is charged with first-degree intentional homicide in the Sept. 11 death of 68-year-old Jane Skalitzky.

In October, a psychiatrist found Skalitzky was incompetent to stand trial, but could be found competent after medication and treatment.

The Wisconsin State Journal reports (http://bit.ly/1Kt89HG) that a psychiatrist reached the same conclusion during a follow-up last month that Skalitzky's incompetent but may become competent with treatment. Skalitzky has been civilly committed at Winnebago Mental Health Institute near Oshkosh since shortly after his arrest.

Prosecutors have said Skalitzky got mad after his mother found a sword and knives, and he believed she and others were inhuman clones.
