A North County man was placed on three years' probation yesterday for his role in the death of his mother in what a judge said was one of the most unusual cases to come before him.

Superior Court Judge Richard E. Mills also ordered Leo Dunckley, 62, to complete 300 hours of volunteer work.

The judge said he had never seen a case like Dunckley's in which the defendant had made such an effort "to do the right thing" and still ended up being convicted of a crime.
