Teacher suspended for showing body parts video

Associated Press

MONTREAL (AP) — A teacher has been suspended by a Montreal school for showing high school students a video that police believe shows the slaying and dismembering of a Chinese student.

Police suspect Luka Magnotta of killing Jun Lin and posting a video online that shows him stabbing and having sex with the dismembered corpse. Magnotta was caught Berlin last week and is facing extradition.

One student told reporters it was the kids who urged the teacher to show the video on June 4. The teacher was suspended with pay.

The school board released a statement Wednesday condemning the teacher's behavior, calling it inappropriate and offensive. Staff at Cavelier-De LaSalle High School said they informed students that a team of psychologists was available to deal any problems. The teacher's name was not released.
