An inquest into the stabbing death of North Hobart shopkeeper Voula Delios has been scheduled to take place in August.
Daryl Royston Wayne Cook was last year found not guilty by reason of insanity, and detained indefinitely in a mental health facility, after stabbing the 68-year-old 22 times in her store on July 23 in 2016.
He had been released from Risdon Prison the day before.
In a police interview, Cook said he had committed the murder because he was waging war on heathens.
The Supreme Court heard the 36-year-old had stopped taking medication to treat schizophrenia in the months leading up to his release.
In a case management conference in Hobart Coroners Court on Tuesday, Coroner Simon Cooper penciled in a start date of August 12 for the inquest.
The inquest is likely to look at Cook's time in Risdon Prison before his release.
Another case management conference will be held on Monday, April 29.
