Montreal - A Canadian man sentenced to life in prison for killing and dismembering his Chinese lover and mailing the body parts to schools and political parties, has joined a matchmaking website for inmates.

Luka Magnotta's profile was posted on Sunday on a website that tries to hook up lonesome convicts - some behind bars for violent offences like first-degree murder - with potential companions on the outside.

The profile features two photos of the former stripper and prostitute, who was convicted in December of first-degree murder for the 2012 killing and dismemberment of university student Jun Lin in Montreal in a case that horrified Canadians.

In both images, Magnotta is wearing an unbuttoned white dress shirt.

Magnotta, dubbed the "Canadian Psycho" during his trial, is serving a life sentence with possible parole after 25 years.
