Toronto: Canadian police say a porn actor accused of videotaping a gruesome murder before posting it to the internet will be charged with threatening Canada's prime minister after mailing a severed foot to his Conservative party headquarters.

Montreal Police Cmdr Ian Lafreniere said on Saturday that because it was addressed to Prime Minister Stephen Harper's party office they can lay an additional charge against Luka Rocco Magnotta.

Magnotta is also wanted for first-degree murder, defiling a corpse and using the mail system for delivering "obscene, indecent, immoral or scurrilous" material.

Lafreniere say they still believe Magnotta, 29, is in France. Police say he fled to France on May 26 based on evidence they found at his apartment. Police identified the victim as Chinese university student Jun Lin, 33.
