This is an update to a terrible story I reported on previously.
A 58-year-old British man named Graham Bishop, accused of stabbing his four-year-old twin daughters, pleaded not guilty in court yesterday. Bishop’s lawyer had indicated that Bishop would point to temporary insanity in his defense at a preliminary hearing.
“There is a likelihood that he was suffering from insanity at the time [of the attack],” Bishops’ lawyer stated. B.T tabloid reported that Bishop entered the courtroom on crutches and appeared battered from his self-inflicted wounds after the attack.
Since Bishop moved from England to Denmark in 2000, he required an English-speaking interpreter in court. Bishop is a medium who has appeared on several Danish reality shows. He claims that he can communicate with spirits when a spirit he refers to as Dr. Karl possesses him.
He is accused of stabbing his daughters at Rigshospitalet’s pediatric center on Sunday, 09-02-12, where one of the daughters received long-term care. After the police entered the room (following the stabbing), he reportedly stabbed himself in the stomach and proceeded to jump out the window.
Fortunately, both daughters are in stable condition at Rigshospitalet but are in comas, according to B.T. Ekstra Bladet tabloid reports that the considerably younger wife of Bishop had asked him for a divorce before the stabbings and could have been the reason for him to attack his twin daughters.
