WINNIPEG (CP) The man accused of slaying a fellow passenger on a Greyhound bus cant be deported to his native China because he became a Canadian citizen nearly two years ago.

The Winnipeg Free Press said unnamed justice sources say Vincent Vince Weiguang Li, 40, became a Canadian citizen on Nov. 7, 2006.

Li is charged with second-degree murder in the seemingly random killing of 22-year-old Tim McLean on a Winnipeg-bound bus at the end of July.

The funeral for McLean, a carnival worker, was held Saturday in Winnipeg.

The sources say Li arrived in Canada on June 11, 2001, at the Vancouver International Airport as a permanent resident with a computer programming job already lined up. He was joined by his wife, Anna.

He had no prior criminal record.
