The guy who went from killing kittens to killing people in ‘Don't F**k With Cats' will NOT get an early release due to coronavirus.
Reports surfaced over the weekend Luka Magnotta‘s prison — a maximum security facility in Quebec — has seen a couple dozen confirmed cases of COVID-19 within its tightly-confined walls, and that LM could get sprung as a result.
Welp, there's literally no chance of that happening for the convicted murderer, as it turns out. The Correctional Service of Canada — which oversees all prisons — tells TMZ … the guy isn't gonna taste freedom for another 14 years.
Pandemic or not. Period!
The agency made no bones about it, telling us … “Mr. Magnotta is not eligible, under law, for any form of parole” until June 4, 2034. As for COVID cases in Luka's prison — they say they've had 15 positive tests there, but 11 have fully recovered and they've had zero deaths.
CSC says it's only looking to possibly release low-level offenders who wouldn't necessarily pose a risk to the public if they're granted supervised home arrest. That ain't Luka, obviously … the guy was convicted of killing and dismembering international student Jun Lin, after an international manhunt.
So yeah … whether he has COVID-19, is at risk of getting it or anything related, it doesn't matter. Luka's staying locked up — case closed.
