Charges laid in York student’s death

Former student politician Brian Dickson appeared in court Thursday


 

A 29-year-old man has been charged in the murder of York University student Qian Liu, 23. Brian Dickson was briefly in court Thursday morning before his case was remanded until April 26. The Toronto Star reported that a publication ban had been ordered on court proceedings. Liu’s body was found in her room on Aldwinckle Heights, close to the York campus, last Friday morning at around 11:00 am. She had been speaking with her boyfriend in Beijing over the internet at around 1:00 am, when her webcam reportedly shut down. Today the boyfriend told reporters that prior to the webcam being disconnected, he witnessed a man entering Liu’s room and attempting to hug her. When Liu refused, the man evidently became aggressive. The accused is a  former McLaughlin College representative for the York Federation of Students, and a former vice-president of York’s Undergraduate Political Science Council.
