Man who beheaded Greyhound bus passenger wins right to live on his own — with daily monitoring

Baker originally was kept in a secure wing at the Selkirk Mental Health Centre, but the board has granted him increasing freedoms almost every year.The request for more freedom came from Baker’s medical team, which said he has been a model patient and understands the need to continue to take anti-psychotic medication.Even living on his own, he would be subject to several conditions that would include daily monitoring, regular check-ins with mental health professionals and random drug tests.Baker sat next to the 22-year-old McLean on the bus after the young man smiled at him and asked how he was doing.Baker said he heard the voice of God telling him to kill the young carnival worker or “die immediately.” Baker repeatedly stabbed McLean who unsuccessfully fought for his life.As passengers fled the bus, Baker continued stabbing and mutilating the body before he was arrested.
