A paranoid schizophrenic woman who splashed drain cleaner on her 16-year-old neighbour, who she claimed often berated her and peered into her home, was yesterday ordered to spend four months in a psychiatric centre. Tsoi Sau-hing, 47, had earlier pleaded guilty at the Court of First Instance to one count of throwing a corrosive fluid with intent. She admitted throwing the drain cleaner over the door of the teenager's flat and then on him in February.
