The man accused of killing Marie Jamieson in Auckland eight years ago is to stand trial.

Joseph Reekers, 51, appeared in Waitakere District Court on Thursday for a deposition hearing, charged with rape and murder.

He pleaded not guilty to both charges.

A court ruling prevented media from attending the hearing due to sensitive issues surrounding the evidence.

Marie Jamieson. went missing in 2001. The 23-year-old's body was later found behind a west Auckland factory.
