Man, 29, who killed a stranger, 25, by pushing her off a pier will be assessed in secure hospital


A man who killed a stranger after he pushed her from a pier and into the water claiming it was a ‘bit of fun’ has been sent to hospital for examination. 

Jacob Foster, 29, shoved Charmaine O’Donnell, 25, off Helensburgh Pier in Argyll and Bute on 23 April last year. 

Ms O’Donnell, a charity worker from Glasgow, suffered severe neck injuries and drowned. 

Foster, who suffers from a learning disability, was convicted of a culpable homicide charge following a trial at the High Court in Glasgow.

The sentencing was told that medical practitioners agreed that he should be observed for a period of time at The State Hospital in Carstairs, South Lanarkshire.

Judge Lord Fairley granted an interim compulsion order with a review to take place in February.
