TORONTO -- Chuang "Ray" Li was no longer smiling that eerie smile.
Accused of going on a bloody rampage after being fired from his IT job, the Mississauga, Ont., man appeared briefly in a Finch Ave. court Thursday. Unlike the previous day's photos of him in the back of a police cruiser sporting a bizarre grin, the 47-year-old wasn't looking as pleased with himself as he was remanded in custody.
Li faces 11 charges, including three counts of attempted murder in the stabbings of Ceridian's Dayforce human resources manager Rajsri De, vice-president of research and development Jimmy Konandreas and implementation director Scott Berenthal.
His wife had waited most of the day for his appearance and was seen sobbing in the washroom as the hearing was repeatedly delayed as they waited for a Mandarin interpreter. When he was finally brought in, she saw her bespectacled husband dressed in prison-issue orange pants and his own blue sweatshirt, his left hand wrapped in a white bandage.
His alleged victims have fared much, much worse.
