MONTREAL — Luka Rocco Magnotta is appealing his first-degree murder conviction in the killing of Chinese student Jun Lin.

Magnotta is also appealing the guilty verdicts that were handed down on the four other charges he faced.

The native of Scarborough, Ont., was convicted on Dec. 23 and sentenced to life imprisonment, with no chance of applying for parole for 25 years.
