A teenager has denied a charge of wounding with intent to cause grievous bodily harm over an early morning incident at a Northcote property on February 17.
The youth, who has interim name suppression, elected jury trial, defence counsel Chris Nolan told Christchurch District Court Judge Raoul Neave today.
The youth was further remanded in custody for a Crown case review hearing on May 2.
Judge Neave continued the suppression order but said it would have to be argued in court at the next appearance if it was going to be continued.
A 43-year-old man was taken to hospital in critical condition after the 2am incident.
