A 20-year-old man who allegedly murdered a tertiary student at the Suva Foreshore in May pleaded not guilty to his charge in the Suva High court today.
Saula Temo is charged with one count of murder.
It is alleged that on May 17th this year, Temo hit 23-year-old Akuila Salavuki with a piece of timber at the FDB foreshore that caused his death.
The deceased was found lying in a pool of blood by two men the next day.
Temo was arrested after weeks of investigation.
The state today informed the court that there are admissions in the caution interview.
Defence has requested for time to consider whether they will challenge the caution interview.
The matter has been adjourned to 27th November for voir dire grounds and agreed facts.
