A judge has reserved his decision on issues relating to evidence to be called at the retrial of double-murder accused Mark Lundy.

However in the High Court in Wellington today Justice Alan MacKenzie said nothing could be published about the hearing because of the risk of prejudicing Lundy's right to a fair trial.

The judge said his decision on the hour-long hearing would also be suppressed.

Lundy, 55, is charged with murdering his wife Christine, 37, and daughter Amber, 7, at the family's Palmerston North home in August 2000.

Last October the Privy Council at London overturned his convictions and ordered a retrial which is set to take place in February.

Soon after the retrial decision was made Lundy was granted bail to a location which was suppressed.

He was not present for today's hearing.
