In the murder trial of Luka Magnotta, the so-called "Canadian Cannibal," jurors were shown gruesome crime scene photos of a blood-soaked apartment in Montreal and the tools he allegedly used to dismember a Concordia University student.

Prosecutors paraded numerous photos in open court, showing a blood-stained fridge and several tools –- an angle grinder, ice pick and knife -– allegedly used in the slaying and dismemberment of Jun Lin, a 33-year-old student reported Missing on May 24.

Magnotta, a 32-year-old low-budget porn actor, is on trial for the 2012 slaying of Lin.

Police in Montreal believe Magnotta murdered and sexually assaulted Jun on or about May 25, 2012. The murder and ensuing acts were allegedly captured on video and uploaded to a website, police said.

Canadian authorities said they have a longer version of the video, which indicates Magnotta may have cannibalized parts of his victim.

In the days following the slaying, Lin’s torso was found in a suitcase near Magnotta's apartment. Later that morning, authorities were called to the headquarters of the Conservative Party of Canada to investigate a suspicious package. Inside, they found Lin's severed foot and a note, police said. A second body part -- Lin's severed hand -- was found that night inside a package at the Ottawa Postal Terminal that was addressed to the Liberal Party of Canada.

Other body parts of Jun were found at the apartment building; his right hand and foot showed up at two Vancouver schools.

Following a world-wide manhunt, Magnotta was arrested in Germany, in June 2012.

The trial is ongoing this week.
