MONTREAL - A public memorial will be held this morning for slain Montreal student Jun Lin.

The 33-year-old Chinese national was killed and dismembered two months ago in a gruesome case that shocked people around the world.

Lin's parents are expected to attend the ceremony at a Montreal church.

Luka Rocco Magnotta has pleaded not guilty to several charges in connection with Lin's death — including a count of first-degree murder.

Lin was studying computer science at Concordia University.

The university says it has raised more than $70,000 in Lin's name to support his family and Chinese students at the school.
