OTTAWA (Reuters) - A Canadian man accused of murdering and dismembering a Chinese student, eating parts of the corpse and posting an online video of the crime will go on trial in Montreal on September 15, 2014, an official said on Monday.
Luka Rocco Magnotta, 30, is accused of killing Jun Lin in Montreal in May 2012, posting a video on the Internet of the stabbing death and defiling the body and eating parts of it.
He has pleaded not guilty to first-degree murder, indignities to a body and publishing obscene materials.
Jean Pascal Boucher, a spokesman for Quebec's prosecution service, said a crowded court schedule explains why the trial cannot be held until next year. Lawyers for both sides estimate the trial will last between six and eight weeks, he added.
