A 25-year-old West Australian man charged with murder over an alleged one-punch attack will face trial after pleading not guilty.
Arron Leigh Rebbeck was initially charged with grievous bodily harm, accused of attacking Steven Richards in South Perth on November 7.
The 45-year-old later died.
Rebbeck entered the plea when he appeared in Stirling Gardens Magistrates Court via videolink from the maximum-security Casuarina Prison on Wednesday.
He will make his first appearance in the Supreme Court on November 11.
