The jury in the trial of the man accused of murdering Grace Millane has heard that he restricted the breathing of a woman he met on Tinder during sex.

Three women who met the accused on the dating app have given evidence in the High Court in Auckland - two of them by audio-visual link from a separate room.

They detailed their interactions with the 27-year-old man, who has name suppression, including their sexual encounters with him.

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