British man Charles Mann was sentenced to 8 months in jail after getting high on meow meow, stabbing his mother 11 times, and cutting off his own penis.

The 21-year-old attacked his mother after binging on the party drug and a large amount of alcohol.

Emma Mann was awoken in December 2013 when her son returned home and began trashing his room. Mann followed his mother into the kitchen and stabbed her 11 times, then cut off his own penis.

Emma called 999 and reported to operators that her son had attacked her. When police arrived, Mann was not reacting to pain and was described as “manic.”

“I have stabbed her many times,” Mann reportedly told police. “I have killed her.”

Mann is said to have described himself as a pedophile to police and begged them not to let him live.

“Take me to the light,” Mann reportedly said. “I can see the vampires.”

After pleading guilty to grievous bodily harm, Mann was sentenced to 16 months in jail, though the sentencing was later reduced to eight months. He will serve another four weeks owing to the time he has already spent in jail.

The sentencing judge David Rennie described Mann's case as "exceptional" since he has no memory of the event and was under the influence of drugs and alcohol.

Emma required surgery following the attack.

Mann has reportedly since recovered from his psychosis.
