MILFORD - The man accused of robbing a bank in Milford last week told a judge today that he took too much of his schizophrenia medication before the robbery took place.

Mark Henderson's mother also says he is schizophrenic and did not know what he was doing when he robbed the Webster Bank on South Broad Street last Thursday.

Newly released court records show that Henderson has already been convicted of bank robbery.

The judge set his bond at $1 million.
