MONTREAL (AP) - A Canadian porn actor accused of dismembering his Chinese lover and mailing the body parts to several addresses has pleaded not guilty to five charges including first degree murder.

Luka Magnotta pleaded not guilty Tuesday through his lawyer Pierre Panaccio.

On Thursday, the court will consider Magnotta's lawyer request that he be evaluated by a psychiatrist to determine his criminal responsibility.
