A 22-year-old Christchurch woman has pleaded not guilty to the murder of her boyfriend.
Zariah Jae Samson reappeared in the High Court in Christchurch on Friday when she entered a not guilty plea.
Interim name suppression was lifted for Ms Samson and the dead man, 30-year-old Cory James Protos, of Christchurch.
Police allege Ms Samson murdered Mr Protos on 27 April at a property in Conference Street, central Christchurch, before his body was moved to a home in the suburb of Bryndwr where Ms Samson lived.
Ms Samson remains in custody and will reappear in court on 18 July.
