How Grace Millane's murder accused appeared in court

Ms Millane (22) died while travelling in New Zealand and her body was found in bushland on Sunday afternoon, about 30 feet from a highway outside the New Zealand city.

The defendant, who can not be identified for legal reasons, appeared in Auckland's High Court on Tuesday and entered a not guilty plea.

Justice Simon Moore scheduled a murder trial for 4 November, which is expected to last three weeks, the New Zealand Herald reported.

The man accused of killing the British backpacker Grace Millane has pleaded not guilty.

Other than making his plea, the accused remained silent during the brief hearing and was remanded in custody.

The accused will next appear in court on April 3.

Grace's father, David Millane, spent a week in New Zealand following the discovery of his daughter's body, and thanked the people of New Zealand for their kindness and compassion.

He made an appearance in a lower court in December and while he was earlier identified by worldwide media, his legal appeal to keep his name secret in New Zealand is ongoing and will be argued in court next month.

She was on a round-the-world backpacking trip and had just arrived in the country.
