Trial dates have been set for two high-profile murder cases in Auckland.

Sergeant Don Wilkinson was shot dead in September last year during a covert operation in Mangere.

John Skinner and Iain Clegg will stand trial for the killing, and the attempted murder of his colleague, in May next year.

The body of Marie Jamieson was found behind a West Auckland factory, nine days after she went missing, in 2001.

Joseph Reekers was arrested last year and charged with rape and murder.

He is due to go on trial next April.
