A Manitoba psychiatrist says he believes a schizophrenic man who beheaded and cannibalized a fellow passenger on a Greyhound bus will stay on his medication.
Dr. Jeffrey Waldman says Will Baker, formerly known as Vince Li, knows that it's the medication that keeps his illness at bay and Baker doesn't want that to change.
Baker was found not criminally responsible in the killing of Tim McLean in 2008 and is seeking an absolute discharge from Manitoba's Criminal Code Review Board.
That would mean Baker would be free, but Waldman says Baker would still work with his treatment team if released.
Waldman says Baker plans to visit his native China if released but would live in Winnipeg for the next two to three years.
McLean's mother, Carol de Delley, has been outspoken against the move, saying there would be no way to ensure Baker continued to take his medication.
