A Canberra man has been accused of sexual offences against the woman he allegedly murdered and drove to the south coast earlier this year.
Josaia Vosikata, 27, appeared in the ACT Magistrates Court on Tuesday and pleaded not guilty to all four charges against him.
Vosikata is accused of killing Daniela D'Addario, 35, in April. He allegedly placed her body in the boot of a Hyundai Getz and drove to the NSW South Coast, sparking a significant manhunt.
He was detected by a Channel 7 cameraman near Bermagui, who alerted police.
Vosikata was later extradited to face court in the ACT and charged with Ms D'Addario's murder.
He appeared before Magistrate Beth Campbell and a full courtroom on Tuesday, and was charged with sexual intercourse and attempted sexual intercourse with Ms D'Addario without her consent.
He was also charged with indecently interfering with a dead body.
Vosikata entered pleas of not guilty to all charges.
Director of Public Prosecutions Jon White asked for a six-week delay to allow prosecutors time to prepare the full brief of evidence.
Defence lawyer Paul Edmonds made no bail application on his client's behalf, and asked for Vosikata to be brought to court again on the next occasion.
