The Canadian porn actor suspected of killing and chopping up his lover told a Berlin judge today that he would not challenge his extradition from Germany.
A spokesman for the Berlin public prosecutor's office said: '[Luka Magnotta] has been before the judge, who has confirmed the arrest. He said he would not fight the extradition.'
The 29-year-old, who was an international fugitive for almost two weeks, was finally captured while looking at naked pictures of himself in an internat cafe in the German captial.
Cafe owner Uelkue Sungur said Magnotta had googled his own name and searched for details of the police's desperate attempts to track him down, including those on the Interpol website.
He had also looked at nude images of himself, apparently on his own website or email, during his short time in the Berlin cafe.
Dramatic images of the moment Magnotta - dubbed the Canadian Psycho - was arrested emerged late last night.
Just after 11am yesterday morning Magnotta, clean-shaven and wearing jeans, sunglasses and a black jacket with a hood, strolled into the Helin Tele and Internet Cafe on Karl-Marx-Strasse in the working class Neukoelln district of the German capital.
As he sat at a computer terminal Googling the latest news reports about himself, cafe worker Kadir Anlayisli quietly called the police to inform them of his whereabouts.
At around 11.30am a squad of heavily-armed officers stormed into the cafe where Magnotta was pinned to the floor and handcuffed without offering any resistance.
Eyewitnesses said armed officers asked the suspect ‘Are you the wanted man?’ and he responded ‘Yes, that’s me,’ he said.
The arrest brought to an end an international trawl spanning thousands of miles and hundreds of police officers across two continents.
A man at the internet cafe who described himself as the ‘boss’ but who would not give his name , confirmed Magnotta had been there.
'Then the cops came and it was all over for him,’ he said.
'It all happened very quickly, in a blur. Everyone is beating a path to my door. But the police have told me not to say too much.’
The arrest – which took place in an area known for its gay bars and sordid sex joints – brought an end to an international trawl spanning thousands of miles and two continents.
It began after Magnotta allegedly murdered and dismembered his former gay lover Jun Lin, 33 in his flat in Montreal on the night of May 24.
The university student’s torso was found in the apartment while parts of his body were posted to political offices in Ottawa, including the prime minister’s party headquarters.
A ten minute videotape purporting to record the horrific crime was posted online, showing a man stabbing his naked and bound victim with an ice pick.
The attacker then hacks him to pieces and eats part of his flesh. He is also seen performing sexual acts on the corpse.
One member of the investigative team said the murderer ‘tears the victim apart like a doll’.
The video, entitled One Lunatic, One Ice Pick, was set to the soundtrack from American Psycho, earning the suspect his nickname.
Magnotta, who has worked as a bisexual porn star and a gay prostitute called Angel and often dresses as a woman, apparently fled to France on May 26.
