Palmira Silva ran a cafe near Edmonton Green station
An elderly woman was beheaded by a man who went on a rampage in north London, the Old Bailey has heard.
Palmira Silva, 82, was in her garden when she was attacked by paranoid schizophrenic Nicholas Salvador, prosecutors said.
The court heard he was armed with a wooden pole and machete and was arrested following a violent struggle in which he was tasered six times.
The 25-year-old from Enfield denies murder by reason of insanity.
He also denies assault by actual bodily harm by reason of insanity and assaulting a police officer.
The trial continues.
