A SUSPECT ACCUSED in the notorious slaying and dismembering of a Chinese student in Montreal has appeared in person at a downtown courtroom in the city.

Luka Rocco Magnotta was present at the Montreal court for the first time since his high-profile extradition on Monday from Germany, where he was arrested after an international manhunt.

On Tuesday, Magnotta pleaded not guilty to killing Chinese student Lin Jun, in an appearance via a video link from a detention centre where he had been held.

Authorities had said they did not want the suspect to appear in person at the courthouse for safety reasons.

Earlier this month packages containing a human foot and hand were sent to two schools in Vancouver, which were suspected to be the missing body parts of Lin Jun, whose hand and foot had been mailed a week earlier to Canada’s top political parties.
