The name of the man accused of murdering Christchurch teenager Hayden Miles can be revealed after a judge this morning lifted a name suppression order.
Gavin John Gosnell, 27, is accused of killing the 15-year-old on August 22 last year.
He appeared from custody at a Christchurch District Court hearing before Judge David Saunders today.
A psychiatric report, ordered at his last court appearance before Christmas, was not ready for the courts and he was remanded in custody at Christchurch Men's Prison until February 3.
A post-committal conference has also been scheduled, for March 23.
Defence counsel Craig Ruane did not seek a continuation of an interim name suppression order and Judge Saunders lifted it.
Gosnell, whose address has been given as the city's men's prison, is described as unemployed.
It is understood that he is not from Christchurch and does not have any family in the city.
Two others have been charged in relation to Miles, who was the subject of a prolonged missing persons probe last year.
An 18-year-old woman, who has name suppression, has been charged with being an accessory to murder.
She did not appear in court today.
A third accused, a 35-year-old Christchurch man with name suppression, has been charged of robbing Miles of a cask of wine, iPod and cellphone on August 22 - the day police say the youngster was killed.
Miles, who was in Child, Youth and Family care, went missing after going to a friend's house at Cashel St.
His remains were found on December 13 at the Ruru Lawn Cemetery in Linwood and his distraught family laid him to rest at a memorial service on December 23.
