Luka Rocco Magnotta Murder Case Back in Court Ahead of his March Preliminary Hearing

January 9, 2013 // Trial News

Crown Prosecutors  and Luka Magnotta’s defence lawyers will meet in a Montreal courtroom this afternoon to iron out the details of Magnotta’s preliminary hearing, which is scheduled to begin just two months from now on March 11th 2013. A shackled Luka Rocco Magnotta remained impassive as he made his first court appearance since last June. The proceedings took place in a high-security courtroom where Magnotta sat throughout in a large prisoner’s box. At the end of the session, Luka then used an intercom phone to speak briefly to his lawyers before being whisked away.



  1. Just wanted to say, “Thank you” for keeping this page going. I live in the states, so, your posts, keeping us up to date on the story is the best I can get down here. The Magnotta story isn’t exactly a top story here, though we have our share of crazy crap making headlines. Been following this story since it broke last year. Very interested to see what comes out in the court hearings. Clearly that boy is sick.
