Psychiatrist recommends man who beheaded bus passenger go to Winnipeg group home

The psychiatrist of a man who beheaded a fellow passenger aboard a Greyhound bus is recommending Vince Li be moved from a mental hospital to a community group home in Winnipeg.

WINNIPEG — The psychiatrist of a man who beheaded a fellow passenger aboard a Greyhound bus is recommending Vince Li be moved from a mental hospital to a community group home in Winnipeg.

Dr. Steven Kremer told a criminal code board review hearing Li has had a good year and is at low risk to reoffend.

Kremer says Li has not had any hallucinations in over a year and understands the need to take his medication.

He says Li should be transferred to a Winnipeg hospital with an eye to moving to a group home and given unescorted visits in the city.

Li found not criminally responsible for stabbing and beheading Tim McLean, a young carnival worker, in July 2008.

Li said he heard voices telling him to kill McLean.

He has been living at a mental health hospital in Selkirk, Man., but has been given gradually more freedom, including unescorted visits in the community.
