  • Canadian Brian Dickson found guilty of webcam murder

    A Toronto man accused of killing a Chinese student whose last moments were witnessed via webcam by her boyfriend has been found guilty of murder.

    Lawyers for Brian Dickson, 32, had argued he did not mean to kill York University student Qian Liu, 23.

    But prosecutors rejected his offer to plead to a lesser charge.

    Liu was found dead on 15 April 2011, hours after her boyfriend saw her trying to fend off an attacker during their web chat.
