The boyfriend of a 23-year-old woman, who was found dead in her Toronto apartment in 2011, testified this week describing in detail what he saw via Skype while his girlfriend was attacked.
Qian 'Necole' Liu’s neighbor, Brian Dickson, has been charged with her murder.
Liu was Skyping with her boyfriend Xian Meng, who was in China, on April 15, 2011, when she heard a knock at the door of her basement apartment around 1 a.m.
She answered it and a man standing there tried to hug her. Meng told the court Friday that he heard Liu say “No” – once in English and a second time in Mandarin. The attacker shoved Lui, pushed his way into the apartment, and closed the door behind him.

Then Meng heard two “muffled bangs” and silence. He said moments later he saw a stranger, who was naked from the waste down, turn off the computer.
Liu’s “lifeless body was located face down on the floor, a nightgown pulled up around her chest,” said Crown attorney Christine Pirraglia.
“She was naked from the waist down,” Pirraglia added.
Semen on the body matched Dickson’s to a probability of 1 in 2.7 trillion. A blood stain on a t-shirt found in Dickson’s apartment matched Liu to a probability of 1 in 140 quadrillion.

“No, I did not. I had nothing to do with it at all,” he said, according to the Daily Mail.
