Steve Wright denies killing Gemma Adams, 25, Tania Nicol, 19, Anneli Alderton, 24, Paula Clennell, 24, and 29-year-old Annette Nicholls.
The women, who worked as prostitutes, were found dead near Ipswich during a 10-day period in December 2006.
The jurors are due to return to Ipswich Crown Court on Wednesday morning to start hearing evidence.
Photographers and film crews captured Mr Wright's arrival at the court on Monday morning in a prison van and again as he left the court just before 1630 GMT.
He appeared in Court One and confirmed his name during the hearing.

Police began inquiries on 1 November, 2006 when Miss Nicol was reported missing by her mother.
On 15 November, they issued an appeal for information about a second missing woman, Miss Adams.
Then on 2 December the body of Miss Adams was found by a member of the public in a brook at Thorpes Hill, Hintlesham.
This was followed on 8 December by the discovery of Miss Nicol's body by a specialist diving team in water at Copdock Mill.
On 10 December the body of Miss Alderton was spotted by a passing motorist in woodland at Nacton.
Two days later a member of the public reported seeing a body near to Old Felixstowe Road.
Officers responded and the crew of the Suffolk Police helicopter saw a second body close by.

They were later confirmed to be Miss Clennell and Miss Nicholls.
The investigation was the biggest ever faced by the Suffolk force and involved 300 of their officers supported by specialist staff.
Another 300 officers and staff were brought in from 40 other forces in England, Wales and Northern Ireland to assist.
The trial is taking place in Court One, but the neighbouring court is also being used due to the media interest and the large number of relatives and friends of the victims.
Among those present were the defendant's father Conrad and his brother Keith.
Extra police have been stationed outside the court with more inside, while security screening has been increased.
Peter Wright QC is presenting the prosecution case, while Mr Wright is being defended by Timothy Langdale QC.
