Vincent Weiguang Li Will Not Be Deported

While some have called for the Greyhound cannibal to be sent back to China, it won’t happen.

Justice sources say Vincent Weiguang Li, 40, became a Canadian citizen on Nov. 7, 2006.

Li is entitled to full immunity from deportation regardless of what happens with his criminal case.

Vincent Li is accused of the slaying and decapitation of Tim McLean.

Li must undergo a forensic psychiatric assessment and will be back in court on September 8.

His mental health is expected to be the only issue as the case moves forward. Those who got to know Li in Winnipeg believe he was suffering from paranoid schizophrenia but that he rejected suggestions to go see a doctor.

His wife has told police Li spent four days in an unidentified psychiatric facility. RCMP are investigating that claim.
