Last Thursday, a mental patient at Rotorua Hospital’s psychiatric ward in New Zealand was assaulted. Today, she was named as Moria Albert, 51, from Rotorua. After the attack, she was taken to the intensive care unit and placed on life support, but died that afternoon.

The attacker, Nigel Mountford of Rotorua, was charged with murder and appeared in court on Friday. He entered no plea, and a psychological assessment is pending.
