He has pleaded not guilty to murdering Delia Grace Williams, who was 55.

Ms Williams died after being hit by a car in the suburb of Northland in March.

Mr Stevens also pleaded not guilty to using a motor vehicle as a weapon and drink driving when he appeared in the High Court at Wellington earlier this week.

His next appearance is in July.
