Canadian Cannibal Jodi Arias: Hell Hath No Fury

British journalist testifies at preliminary hearing for alleged Canadian murderer


A British journalist who interviewed accused murderer Luka Magnotta testified Thursday morning at a preliminary hearing in Montreal for the first-degree murder trial.

The details of the testimony are not currently available because of a publication ban that prevents any testimony or evidence presented at the preliminary hearing from being reported.

Alex West, a reporter for the The Sun in London, interviewed the 30-year-old former porn actor in December 2011 while Magnotta was living in Britain.

The preliminary hearing also took an unexpected turn on Wednesday when lead defense lawyer Luc Leclair told the court one of his Toronto-based colleagues, Raphael Feldstein, would remove himself from the case because of a conflict of interest. The details of the conflict are also protected by the publication ban.

Mr. Leclair thanked him for “his assistance, his spirit and all the hard work he did.”

Magnotta is accused of murdering and dismembering Chinese student Jun Lin five months after the interview with West. He then allegedly mailed the body parts throughout Canada, including to a middle school in Vancouver and the Canadian Parliament Building. The story drew international attention as Magnotta fled to France and Germany before he was caught at an internet café in Berlin.

The father of the victim Lin Jun was also in court Thursday observing the preliminary hearing.
