A man charged with stabbing a man to death on New Year's Day has pleaded not guilty and will go to trial.

Peter Job, 39, appeared in the High Court at Auckland this morning accused of murdering Papatoetoe man Nathan Albert, 27.

A member of the public unsuccessfully tried to revive Albert after finding him by the side of Pilkington Rd, Panmure, about 4am on New Year's Day this year.

Police investigations revealed Albert was picked up by taxi in central Auckland before being taken to the street where he eventually died.

A knife believed to have been used in the attack was found in a nearby hedge.

Job pleaded not guilty and a three week trial was set for March 24, 2014.
