Aliya Zilic was arrested and held at a mental hospital due to the brutal murder of his 3-year-old son, Imran, in 2008. However, due to being found not guilty because of mental incompetence, he may be released back into the world soon. Zilic slit the throat of his son and threw him down a mine shaft while saying Allah’s name in 2008.
He also has called his ex-wife possessed by demons and claims she is working for the devil. According to Zilic’s lawyer, his mental condition prevented him from realizing what he had done and that he did not understand the sense of his crimes.
Doctors have been working to give Zilic access to the outside world away from the mental institution, providing him the chance of going on 24 outings with supervising staff and 24 outings while watched by guards. In other words, he is receiving day release.
