11:48 am on 21 October 2014

An 18-year-old man accused of killing a man in Huntly earlier this month has been granted bail.

Peter Hepi is charged with the murder of Kevin Rimaha, 32.

He died from stab wounds following a disturbance involving a number of people.

In the High Court in Hamilton today, Justice Woolford allowed bail on the condition Peter Hepi lived in the Far North with his Grandfather, observes a curfew and does not use illicit drugs, drink alcohol or make any contact with Crown witnesses.

His trial was set down for April next year.
