A trial date has been set for the man accused of killing Feilding farmer Scott Guy.

Mr Guy's brother-in-law, Ewen Macdonald, 30, is charged with his murder.

He appeared in the Palmerston North District Court on Tuesday and was further remanded in custody.

The trial is set to start 5 June and is expected to take up to six weeks.

Mr Guy, 31, was found shot dead on 8 July last year at the end of his driveway in Aorangi Road, southeast of Feilding.
