Luka Rocco Magnotta, 30, is accused of murdering, desecrating, eating and mailing severed body parts of his former 33 year old Chinese lover Jun Lin. He collapsed in a Canadian court on March 19 during the second week of preliminary hearings, forcing a postponement of that hearing.

CTV reports Magnotta appeared distraught before collapsing to the courtroom floor after seeing video evidence presented against him, video that has been banned from publication during the preliminary hearings due to their graphic nature.

Magnotta was still handcuffed and shackled when his lawyers walked over to the glass defendant’s box, according to CTV. CTV also reports that no ambulance showed, leading to believe he may have been removed in a regular prison vehicle.

Magnotta’s lawyer, Luc Leclair, told Judge Lori-Renee Weitzman his client wasn’t feeling well and was unable to continue. The judge determined they could not continue without Magnotta and suspended the case.

Magnotta appeared back in court on Wednesday March, 15.  He has pled not guilty to first-degree murder and related charges.
