WINNIPEG – The man who beheaded Tim McLean on a Greyhound bus near Portage La Prairie in 2008 will soon have more freedom.

The Manitoba Review Board released the decision Friday, granting Vince Li escorted day passes for visits into Winnipeg, Lockport and to nearby beaches.

Li was diagnosed with schizophrenia and was found not criminally responsible for the brutal killing of 22-year-old McLean.

Last year, Li was granted supervised day passes from the Selkirk Mental Health Centre.

He has to be escorted by at least one hospital staff member and one security officer.
