Luka Magnotta who was jailed for life for murdering and chopping up another gay man in 2012 and then eating parts of him and mailing other body parts to schools and political parties in his native Canada has married.
After signing up to dating forum Canadian Inmates Connect, in June 2015, Luka Magnotta, 34, fell for Anthony Jolin, an armed robber who is serving life for stabbing another inmate to death in the shower.
On his dating profile, Magnotta, who was dubbed the “Canadian Psycho”, described himself as a single white male who was seeking a “single white male, 28-38 years of age, white and in shape.”
He added: “One who is loyal, preferably educated, financially and emotionally stable for a long term committed relationship.“
“If you think you could be my prince charming, send me a detailed letter with at least two photos.”
Magnotta, a self obsessed model and escort, filmed himself eating his victim, had admitted killing Chinese student Jun Lin in May 2012, dismembering his body and mailing the wrapped hands and feet to schools and Canadian politicians.
A poem he wrote, which he sent with a body part to a school read: “Roses are red, violets are blue, the police will need dental records to identify you. Bitch.”
Toronto Sun reporter Alex West played a key role in the trial, testifying as to how he confronted Magnotta at a dingy hotel near Wembley Stadium in 2011 about sick internet videos of kittens being killed. That horrific act led Magnotta to be sought by internet sleuths and animal rights groups.
Six months after uploading the sick videos, male escort Magnotta killed Lin, 33, and filmed himself apparently eating the corpse with a knife and fork.
It took a jury eight days to throw out a not guilty plea that he was an insane schizophrenic not accountable for his actions – and convict him of the first degree murder of Lin.
A marriage licence from the Palais de justice de Sept-Îles with Magnotta’s mother Anna Yourkin listed as a witness enabled the convicts to be legally wed at the Pont-Cartier prison, where they are both serving time for murder.
