The ex-boyfriend of a York University student told a Toronto courtroom Friday the horror and helplessness he felt while witnessing via webcam his former love’s final moments. Xia Chao Meng, 27, of Beijing, took the stand for his much-anticipated testimony in the jury trial of Brian Dickson, 32, who is charged with first-degree murder in the death of 23-year-old Qian “Necole” Liu in the wee hours of April 15, 2011. Liu was in her small apartment in the basement of an Aldwinckle Heights home and chatting via webcam with Meng, who was in Beijing, the city where the two met and began dating before ending their relationship after Liu moved to Toronto in September 2011 to study English.
