An Auckland man accused of killing his ex-girlfriend in her parents' sleep-out has pleaded not guilty and will go to trial.

Karl Eddy, 39, appeared in the High Court at Auckland today charged with the murder of Alicia McCallion, 23, who was found dead by family members in the sleepout of their home in Papakura in December 2012

Police said at the time that McCallion was killed with a sharp weapon.

She was found by family members at 7.30am on December 12 in a sleepout adjoining their home on Cotton Pl, Papakura. The last time they saw her alive was 8.30pm the previous night.

Eddy pleaded not guilty and a three week trial was set down for April 28, 2014.
