MONTREAL — The case of alleged body-parts killer Luka Magnotta is back before the courts on Wednesday.
Lawyers for both sides will meet with Quebec court judge Lori-Renee Weitzman to discuss technical matters.
It's not clear if the Toronto-born Magnotta will be in court.
His trial is slated to begin on September 15, 2014.
Magnotta, 31, is charged with first-degree murder in the gruesome killing of Chinese student Jun Lin last year in Montreal.
The story made international headlines after a clip was uploaded online that allegedly showed a man being stabbed with an ice pick, cut into pieces and partially eaten.
Magnotta vanished, triggering an international manhunt that ended in early June 2012 when he was arrested at an Internet cafe in Berlin.
Judge Weitzman agreed in April to hold a jury trial after listening to 32 Crown witnesses over an 11-day preliminary hearing.
