Magnotta is accused of the murder and dismemberment of Concordia University student Jun Lin.Thirty-three-year-old Lin, who was originally from China, was studying computer science in Montreal. He has pleaded not guilty and has opted for a trial in front of a jury.
Lin's torso was discovered stuffed in a suitcase behind Magnotta's apartment building in late May. His hands and feet were mailed to political parties in Ottawa and two B.C. schools.
His head has still not been found.
