Man accused in office stabbing rampage found not criminally responsible

A man who went on a stabbing rampage at a Toronto office while being fired has been found not criminally responsible for his actions.

TORONTO — A man who went on a stabbing rampage at a Toronto office while being fired has been found not criminally responsible for his actions.

An Ontario judge said his decision in Chuang Li’s case was “an extremely close call,” but he ultimately found the 49-year-old not criminally responsible due to a mental disorder.

Li was charged with three counts of attempted murder, four counts of aggravated assault and four counts of assault with a weapon.

Four people were taken to hospital, two of them with life-threatening injuries, after Li started stabbing people while he was in the process of being fired from the human resources company Ceridian Dayforce Corporation last April.

His trial heard Li told officers arresting him that his victims deserved the attack.

Li’s lawyer said his client suffered from paranoid delusions at the time of the incident.

Li, who has been in custody since the incident, will now go before the Ontario Review Board, which will determine which institution he will receive treatment in, and at what level of security he will be held.
