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
