Man who sexually abused teen niece gets increased sentence

TORONTO — A man who sexually assaulted his teenaged niece from Fiji more than 100 times over a three-year period has had his sentence more than doubled by Ontario’s top court.

“This case presented the court with a variant of the pattern of conduct of adult abusers in a position of trust over children,” the justices said in their ruling.
“Here, the child was a teenager, but her extra vulnerability came from the fact that she was an immigrant to Canada…she was in his power in every way.” Continue reading

Police said detectives were notified Wednesday that the body part found in on Sunday was Lin’s head.
Police said Lin’s family was informed of the match.
Authorities had previously said the only body part missing from the gruesome dismemberment was the head.
Luka Rocco Magnotta has pleaded not guilty to first-degree murder in the death and will appear in court next year.
