The tale states Arthur initially received the sword from the Woman of the Lake and wished to return it upon his death.

Matilda shares her name with Empress Matilda, the child of King Henry I and heir to the throne in the 12th century.

MADISON, Wis.– A Wisconsin guy who district attorneys say is badly mentally ill is charged in the death of his mom, who was beheaded with a sword.

Forty-year-old Matthew Skalitzky appeared in court Monday. He’s accused in the Sept. 11 death of his mother, 68-year-old Jane Skalitzky, at a town house in the Madison suburb of Sun Prairie.

Assistant District Attorney Corey Stephan says Skalitzky became upset with his mom after she discovered a box containing knives and a sword.

The district attorney states Matthew Skalitzky is severely mentally ill and saw people, including his mom, as inhuman clones.

The Wisconsin State Journal reports bail was set at $1 million.

Defense lawyer Stan Woodard had argued bail wasn’t needed due to the fact that Skalitzky was being kept in a psychological health center.

A preliminary hearing is set for Oct. 13.
