Teacher who showed Magnotta killing video could be charged

A Quebec teacher who showed her students a disturbing video believed to be the killing of student Lin Jun by Luka Rocca Magnotta could face criminal charges.

The Montreal Gazette reports that the teacher, whose name has not been made public but worked at the École secondaire Cavelier-De LaSalle in La Salle, Quebec, could be charged for “offences tending to corrupt morals” under the Criminal Code. He is currently suspended for having played the video in his history and citizenship education class on Jun. 4.

Magnotta, 29, is the principal suspect in Jun’s killing and dismembering. Police believe the crime was videotaped. Magnotta was arrested in Berlin earlier this month and is awaiting extradition to Canada.
