The person accused of murdering Whanganui man Whetu Hansen has pleaded not guilty.

The man, who has name suppression, appeared via audio-visual link from prison in the High Court in Wellington this morning.

He pleaded not guilty to a charge of murder, and Justice Robert Dobson remanded him until August.

No trial date has yet been set.

Hansen was last seen on November 24, and police started a missing persons inquiry on December 2. That has since become a homicide investigation.
