Luka Magnotta, accused in the grisly murder of Chinese-born university student Lin Jun, is scheduled to appear in a Montreal courtroom on Monday, March 11 for a preliminary hearing.
Magnotta’s lawyer has filed a motion in Quebec Court requesting that the public be banned from the courtroom. Heavy media coverage is expected at the hearing.
Magnotta became the subject of an international manhunt in May after Jun’s body parts were mailed to various locations and offices across Canada. Magnotta has pleaded not guilty to all charges.
Below is a video interview with Nina Arsenault, who was briefly involved with Magnotta.
