The jury were shown Turmel’s photos of the scene, which included red splotches on the bathroom sink, tub and floor, as well as inside the fridge and freezer.
Jurors also saw pictures of packages sent to two Vancouver primary schools in May 2012, wrapped in pink tissue paper.
Inside were body parts, as well as menacing notes, including the poem: “Roses are red, violets are blue, the police will need dental records to identify you b****”.
The prosecution says Magnotta started planning to kill a human being and make a film of it at least six months before Lin was killed.
Prosecutor Louis Bouthillier said on Monday that an alleged email from Magnotta to a journalist in 2011 indicates Lin’s murder was planned and deliberate.Luka Rocco Magnotta – the story so farView gallery
But defence lawyer Luc Leclair said Magnotta had been seen for years by different psychiatrists, and that he had been diagnosed with having a borderline personality disorder.
Other psychiatrists have diagnosed him with schizophrenia, Leclair said.
The investigation was launched after the discovery of a human torso stuffed in rubbish behind a Montreal apartment building in May 2012.
Several body parts then began surfacing in different parts of Canada – first to Prime Minister Stephen Harper’s office and to the Liberal Party’s office and, later, at two British Columbia schools.
Lin’s head was found in a Montreal park.

A video that purportedly depicted the murder was posted online around the same time and was linked by Montreal police to the discovery of the body parts.
Magnotta was also linked to a horrific film entitled Python Christmas in which a cat was fed to a snake.
As police closed in on the suspect he fled to London where he was found in a hotel.
But before police managed to arrest him he had fled to Berlin, where he was later arrested in an Internet cafe.
