MONTREAL — Jurors deciding the fate of Luka Rocco Magnotta begin their fifth day of deliberations today.

The eight women and four men started their work on Tuesday and have emerged just once since then.

Late Friday afternoon they sent a note to the judge indicating they couldn’t view certain videos on the court-issued computer in the room where they’re doing their work.

Magnotta is charged with first-degree murder and four other offences in the slaying and dismemberment of Chinese engineering student Jun Lin in May 2012.

Magnotta has pleaded not guilty by way of mental disorder and is trying to be found not criminally responsible.
