Canadian man charged for hosting murder video

Mark Marek, a Canadian man, was charged with corrupting morals for hosting a video showing a grizzly murder on a website.

TORONTO — Canadian police have charged the owner and operator of a website that hosted a gruesome video of a murder and dismemberment last May.

Edmonton homicide detectives said Wednesday that they have charged Mark Marek, 38, with corrupting morals.

Luka Magnotta is accused of killing his Chinese lover Jun Lin last May and filming a video that shows him stabbing and having sex with the dismembered corpse. He has pleaded not guilty in the slaying of Lin.

Staff Sgt. Bill Clark says Marek allegedly posted the video sent to him by Magnotta online knowing that it depicted a real murder.

Marek has been remanded and will appear in bail court Thursday.

Police say he could face more charges pending further investigation.
