Dyjak was accused of killing 66-year-old Judith Bauer in the family home several hours after she returned from a local hospital where she was being treated for a recent stroke.

Investigators said Bauer had been strangled and stabbed, and there was a puncture wound in her neck.

Police later found Dyjak walking along a Caseyville road, carrying a large knife.

Dyjak now is in the custody of the Illinois Department of Human Services.
