Abstract

The issue of criminal responsibility is no easy matter to resolve at times. One such instance is offered by the case of the sleep walker who commits a violent act in the course of his sleep. However, sleep-walking disorder has not received much professional attention. In this article the author reports one case of sleep-waking disorder (Somnambulism) in which murder was committed in cold blood.
