What was the motive for his crime? Police say Walsh killed his mother for confronting him about making too much noise in the house.

According to WMC-TV, Walsh admitted he loved his mother but killed her with a hatchet after hearing voices that were telling him that his mom was poisoning his food trying to kill him.

Though his father John Kelvin Walsh says he has lost his best-friend and wife, he still wanted the best for his son and asked for leniency for William.

William Walsh is not expected to be out of prison anytime before 2032 as his sentence came with no chances of parole.
