greyhound bus killer determined mentally ill

Some follow-up on Vince Weiguang Li, the man who brutally murdered a man by beheading him on a Greyhound Canada bus last summer... Last week, a judge ruled that Li is not criminally responsible because he is mentally ill. I don't think this comes as a surprise to anyone: Judge rules bus beheading suspect mentally ill.

Li, according to witnesses, repeatedly stabbed then decapitated McLean while riding on a Greyhound bus. Defense psychiatrists testified that Li was suffering from schizophrenia and believed God wanted him to kill McLean because the young man was a force of evil.

The ruling means that Li, who was charged with second-degree murder in the death of his seatmate, Tim McLean Jr., will be hospitalized at a psychiatric facility until he undergoes a review by Manitoba's Criminal Code Review Board.

Prosecutors said they had no choice but to ask the judge to find Li not criminally responsible. This, however, does not sit well with McLean's family, who believe Li is basically getting away with murder: Treatment, not jail, for Manitoba bus beheader; victim's family angry.
