A Kidsgrove man has been given a indefinite hospital order after stabbing his father to death.
Stafford Crown Court heard police were called to a house in Whitehill Road, Kidsgrove, on 11 September 2014.
They found Gareth Ainscow with a bloodied knife, which he dropped when ordered to do so, and was arrested.
He told police his father had assaulted him.
66-year-old David Ainscow was in the house and had suffered knife wounds.
Despite the work of a paramedic, he died shortly afterwards.
Gareth, 49, pleaded guilty to manslaughter with diminished responsibility.
He was sentenced to an indefinite hospital order at a hearing today (28 July).
