A jury has heard that the man accused of murdering British backpacker Grace Millane went on a Tinder date with another woman while her body was in a suitcase.

For the first time, details surrounding Ms Millane's death have been revealed in court - as her parents sat in the public gallery.

There's no dispute she died in the accused man's apartment, but the jury has been asked to consider whether it was intentional, or whether it was an accident.

RNZ reporter Sarah Robson is covering the case and filed this report.
