A three judge panel in Connecticut, has found a Lynn Haven man, who killed and ate parts of a homeless Bridgeport, not guilty by reason of insanity.
The judges delivered the verdict Tuesday in the case of 35-year-old Tyree Lincoln Smith.
Smith used a hatchet to hack Angel Gonzalez to death in Bridgeport, Connecticut in December 2011.
Smith also allegedly ate part of Gonzalez's brain and eyes in a cemetery, then washed it down with a bottle of sake.
Authorities finally discovered Gonzalez's body in an abandoned building about a month later.
Smith stayed in Bridgeport for a few weeks after the killing, then caught a bus to Lynn Haven, where he was arrested in January 2012.
Smith is claiming insanity as his defense, and apparently the court agreed, committing him to a mental facility for the rest of his life.
Had he been found guilty, smith could have faced up to 60-years in prison.
