A deranged rock fan who was released back into the community has been found guilty today of murdering a care worker from Harlesden who asked him to turn down his music.
Michael Meanza, 47, battered Jenny Foote to death with a fire extinguisher in her office at the mental health charity-run Collette House, in Acton, on July 27 last year.
He had been in an out of mental hospitals since 1990 and was allowed out despite making threats to kill his psychiatrist and a nurse in 2013.
Meanza had been a resident at the hostel for three months when he began watching the biopic of legendary 1960s rock group The Doors.
Ms Foote, who lived in Craven Park, knocked on his door after a neighbour complained about the noise coming from his flat.
