At least 25 people waited in line this morning outside the Montreal courtroom where Luka Magnotta's preliminary hearing was set to begin.
He is charged with first-degree murder in the death of Jun Lin, a 33-year-old Chinese-born student who was studying engineering at Concordia University in Montreal.
Magnotta is also accused of committing indignities to a human corpse, mailing obscene materials, publishing obscene materials and threatening public officials.
He has pleaded not guilty to the charges.
On Monday, Lin's father, Diran Lin, arrived at the courthouse with an interpreter.
Some journalists had been waiting in line since 6:30 a.m. to attend the hearing.
