A man who claimed that a split identity drove him to make up a plan to kill his parents did not suffer from multiple-personality disorder, the Court of First Instance heard yesterday.
Prosecutor Diane Crebbin said two government doctors who examined Ian Lee Christoffer Fok Lap-yin, 20, after his arrest last year found he did not have the mental illness.
Crebbin was cross-examining Fok, who is accused along with ex-schoolmate Chan Ming-tin, 20, of murdering his father Fok Lai-chi, 50, and attempting to murder his mother Irene Fok.
Fok has pleaded not guilty to both charges but Chan has admitted the murder charge.
The trial continues before Mr Justice Peter Line on Monday.
