How to use demented in a sentence?

  1. Anuj Somany:

    I deeply regret using those words and giving that impression, my view, which I was clumsily trying to express, was that it is painfully regrettable that someone was not able to intervene in this demented killer's life to stop him right up to the moment he squeezed the trigger.
