Luka Magnotta:Suspect in body dismemberment case extradited to Canada

­Canadian porn actor Luka Magnotta has been extradited from Germany to Canada, where he is facing charges of first-degree murder, defiling a corpse, threatening the prime minister and using the mail system to send “obscene, indecent, immoral or scurrilous” material. Magnotta was arrested at a Berlin Internet café reading stories about himself. He is the primary suspect in the killing and dismembering of Jun Lin, a Chinese student studying at Concordia University. Lin’s torso was later discovered in a garbage dump next to Magnotta’s home in Montreal.  Magnotta is alleged to have sent his body parts to the Conservative and Liberal party headquarters, as well as to two schools in Vancouver. Investigators also say he posted a video online showing himself having sex with the dismembered body.
