Turiarangi Tai appeared at the High Court in Auckland this morning where Justice Moore lifted name suppression.

Mr Tai is charged with the murder of Chozyn Koroheke, and his lawyer has entered a not-guilty plea on his behalf.

A woman charged with being an accessory has also denied the charge and pleaded not guilty.
