Luka Rocco Magnotta is shown in an artist's sketch in a Montreal court on Wednesday, March 13, 2013. Magnotta's trial will begin late next year _ on Sept. 15, 2014.
He will also face a pre-trial conference this coming fall, on Sept. 3.
Magnotta was in court in Montreal on Monday to have a date set for his first-degree murder trial. He faces five charges in connection with the murder and dismemberment of Chinese exchange student, Jun Lin.
Parts of Lin’s body were mailed across the country last May, sparking an international manhunt for Magnotta.
The 30-year old part-time porn actor was arrested in Berlin in June.
