Ernest Saunders didn't use his mental condition as a defence- he was tried, convicted and sentenced to 5 years in prison. He managed to secure an early release, claiming he was beginning to suffer from dementia- only to  make what appeared to be a miraculous recovery. In this case, 4 doctors (not ones chosen by the accused) say he's unable to understand the charges against him. There are other measures that possibly could be taken, but I can't see a court accepting he could be fairly convicted. They could have a hearing and ask a jury to make a finding of fact, but that wouldn't be the same as a guilty verdict.
