A high-profile case is before the courts and social media is under the microscope.

The judge doesn't want testimony from the trial posted on Facebook or Twitter.

The case centers around Dustin Paxton and another man.

Paxton is accused of brutally torturing and starving his roommate.

The victim was beaten, mutilated, starved and then dumped off at a Regina hospital last April

He weighed just 40 kilograms, or 87 pounds. He had been burned, had broken bones and parts of his lips and tongue had been cut off.

The judge has banned the public from attending the preliminary hearing, so evidence doesn't get leaked via social media.
