On April 13, 2013, a Court of Quebec judge determined Luka Rocco Magnotta, an ex-porn star who has been labeled the “Canadian Psycho,” will stand trial for the brutal murder of Concordia University student Jun Lin, 33, according to CBC News.
Magnotta, 30, is also accused of dismembering the student’s body, and using the postal service to harass the prime minister, his staff, and two Vancouver schools by sending them obscene materials—Lin’s hands and feet.
The gruesome murder was allegedly videotaped and posted online. Reports say it shows Magnotta stabbing Lin with an ice pick, dismembering him, eating some of his flesh and performing sexual acts with the body parts.
According to the Associated Press, Magnotta was dubbed the “Canadian Psycho” by the media because the soundtrack from the film “American Psycho” can be heard playing in the background of the alleged murder video.
In June 2012, Magnotta pleaded not guilty to all of the charges he now faces.
In 2005, Magnotta was treated for paranoid schizophrenia, reports the AP citing Canadian media, raising the issue of his ability to stand trial for Lin’s killing.
A judge is slated to determine a court date on April 29.
