Killer in Canadian dismemberment case joins dating site


 A Canadian man sentenced to life in prison for killing and dismembering his Chinese lover and mailing the body parts to schools and political parties has joined a matchmaking website for inmates.

   Luka Magnotta's profile was posted Sunday on Canadian Inmates Connect Inc., a website that tries to hook up lonesome convicts -- some behind bars for violent offenses like first-degree murder -- with potential companions on the outside.

   The profile features two photos of the former stripper and prostitute, who was convicted in December of first-degree murder for the 2012 killing and dismemberment of university student Jun Lin in Montreal in a case that horrified Canadians.

   In both images, Magnotta is wearing an unbuttoned white dress shirt.

   Magnotta is serving a life sentence with possible parole after 25 years.
