A man and woman are expected to go on trial in September charged with the murder of Owen Creaney.
Mr Creaney’s body was found in a wheelie bin in Craigavon in July 2014.
The County Armagh man had been described by police at the time as “vulnerable”.
Two people, 29-year-old Stephen Hughes, from Craigavon, and co-accused Shauneen Boyle, 25, of Edenderry Park, have been charged with the murder.
Both are denying the charges.
The Banbridge woman entered a ‘not guilty’ plea at Belfast Crown Court today (Friday).
Mr Creaney had only celebrated his 40th birthday on June 28, the week before he died.
He was found dumped in a wheelie bin after he had been violently assaulted.
The pair will go on trial in September, and the case reviewed prior to that, in June.
