An Akron man pleaded guilty Tuesday afternoon to charges stemming from the stabbing death of his elderly mother last May.

Michael Gleisinger pleaded guilty under an agreement with prosecutors to reduced charges of involuntary manslaughter and failure to provide for a functionally impaired person.

Gleisinger, 49, will be sentenced by Summit County Common Pleas Judge Alison Breaux at 1 p.m. June 26. He could receive up to 11 years in prison for the involuntary manslaughter charge and 11 months on the failure to provide charge.

Police said Gleisinger stabbed his mother in the chest and abdomen May 16, 2017, in the kitchen of their Goodyear Heights home. Nancy Gleisinger, 76, was taken to Summa Akron City Hospital, where she died later that day.

Earl Gleisinger, Nancy’s husband of 58 years, witnessed the incident, police said.

Prosecutors said Nancy Gleisinger suffered from Alzheimer’s disease and her son was her full-time caregiver. Michael Gleisinger suffered from mental health issues for much of his life.

Michael Gleisinger was originally charged with murder and felonious assault and pleaded not guilty by reason of insanity.

Gleisinger was ruled mentally unfit to stand trial and was confined last November to Northcoast Behavioral Healthcare System in Northfield. Doctors recently deemed him competent to stand trial.

Jeff Laybourne, Gleisinger’s attorney, stipulated Tuesday to the report that found Gleisinger competent.

Gleisinger told Breaux on Tuesday that he has suffered from depression and anxiety throughout the years and is currently taking medications to address these conditions. He said, however, that these medications were not impeding his ability to understand what was happening in court.

Breaux ordered a pre-sentence investigation by the probation department and a victim impact statement.

Laybourne plans to file a sentencing memorandum and declined to comment until after the sentencing.
