Tallahassee, Fla. (WTXL) - A teenager has admitted to killing a retired Tallahassee teacher on August 3rd in a stabbing rampage near the British Museum in London.

Somali-Norwegian Zakaria Bulhan, 19, pleaded guilty to manslaughter during a hearing Monday at London's Central Criminal Court.

Bulhan is responsible for the killing of 64-year-old Darlene Horton.

He also pleaded guilty to five counts of wounding.

Prosecutors said Bulhan was suffering an "acute" episode of paranoid schizophrenia at the time.

Horton had been visiting London with her husband, Florida State professor Richard Wagner, while he was teaching summer classes.

The couple was due to fly home the next day.
