What every state including mine needs is a guilty but insane sentence.It should allow the state to hold them responsible for their crime with imprisonment, after they take their meds and are declared fit to leave the psychiatric hospital.
There is no guarantee that they will stay on the meds or that the meds will continue to work..Whatever drives the person to commit murder,they should be kept away from society.

In my state, a judge has to agree to the release of the person from the state hospital. Of course, you would hope that the justice system will continue to monitor the person and make sure that he takes his medication.
