Crazy SC Man Burns Down Own House Because He Thought It Had Witches

The Item (Sumter, S.C.) reports on the story, and on the fact that the man (Richard Clark) “was deemed not guilty by reason of insanity by 3rd Circuit Judge R. Ferrell Cothran.” State mental health authorities had concluded the man was insane, and the prosecutor agreed that “Clark burned the house down because he believed witches were in the home.”
From  here.

Apparently, if there really had been witches in the house, burning it down would have been justifiable in South Carolina.
