Experts testify at Luka Magnotta preliminary hearing

SUE MONTGOMERY, The Gazette : Monday, March 18, 2013 1:20 PM

MONTREAL – The preliminary hearing for Luka Magnotta continued Monday with four experts testifying, including a forensic pathologist and a dentist.

Magnotta, 30, faces several charges in connection with the death of Chinese exchange student Lin Jun last May.

Magnotta sat in the prisoner’s box Monday, his eyes closed as documents were shown on a screen.

He was arrested June 6 in Berlin and brought back to Montreal, where he was charged with producing and distributing obscene material, desecrating a corpse, murder, and harassing Prime Minister Stephen Harper and other members of Parliament.

Several people, including law students, showed up to watch the proceedings, now in its second week.

None of the details of the testimony can be published because of a court-ordered publication ban.
