A Kings Meadows man who fatally hit a pedestrian, but wasn't criminally liable for his actions due to insanity, will be transferred to a mental health facility.
Joshua Josef Barker appeared in Launceston Supreme Court on Friday for sentencing submissions.
The 31-year-old faced a seven day trial in September this year after pleading not guilty to murdering Dale Watson and assaulting Timothy Bumford on March 9, 2018.
The jury found Barker guilty of fatally hitting Mr Watson on a footpath at Prospect Vale, but he was deemed not criminally liable for his actions because he was insane at the time.
On Friday Justice Robert Pearce granted Barker an interim restriction order.
He will be transferred to the Wilfred Lopes Centre for Forensic Mental Health at Risdon Vale.
The matter was adjourned until December 9.
