Luka Magnotta’s preliminary hearing date set
Attorneys appeared in a Montreal courtroom Wednesday to discuss the details of the March 11 preliminary hearing for Luka Magnotta, the man charged with the murder and dismemberment of Concordia University student Jun Lin in May 2012.
An international manhunt led by Interpol began after a series of body parts were mailed to public buildings throughout Canada. A Vancouver elementary school received a severed hand in the mail, a bloodied human foot was delivered to a middle school, a similar parcel was discovered at the Canadian Parliament Building and law enforcement found still more en route to other government buildings.
Magnotta, 30, was an aspiring gay porn actor, a male escort and a stripper. He is charged with first-degree murder, committing an indignity to a body, publishing obscene material, criminally harassing Prime Minister Stephen Harper and other members of Parliament, and mailing obscene and indecent material.
He has pleaded not guilty and asked for a jury trial.
