R v Burgess

The defendant had been watching a video with a girl and then proceeded to attack her with a bottle and video recorder and put his hands around her neck. He said he was sleepwalking and this should give him the defence of automatism. It was ruled that the evidence was of an internal cause and so the defence was insanity.
