    Abstract

    This paper emphasizes that homicidal behavior may be part of the clinical manifestation of schizophrenia. The failure to hospitalize potentially violent schizophrenics contributes to the incidence of psychotic homicide. The tendency to diagnose homicidal schizophrenics as personality disorders combined with legal changes brought about a shift of this population from the mental health system to the criminal justice system.
