A man has been cleared of the murder of a retired solicitor he stabbed 39 times after a crash between their cars.
Matthew Daley, 35, killed Donald Lock, on the A24 in Findon, near Worthing, last July after the 79-year-old ran into the back of his vehicle.
Daley, who was convicted of manslaughter, had admitted stabbing Mr Lock to death, claiming diminished responsibility.
Lewes Crown Court heard Daley suffered from chronic mental health problems.
The judge, Mr Justice Singh adjourned the case for sentencing on 8 July.
During the trial, jurors were told Daley’s mother pleaded with mental health experts to have her son sectioned.
She told the court the day she heard Mr Lock was killed was “the day that all your nightmares came true”.
The great-grandfather, who had recently been given the all-clear from prostate cancer, was returning from a cycle meeting when his car crashed into the back of Daley’s Ford Fusion.
