Three men accused of murdering Hamilton man Brent Brown have entered not guilty pleas to the charge.

Mr Brown, 45, was found dead at his Poaka Ave home on August 31 after he was allegedly bashed to death with a blunt instrument.

Lance Tangiriki Bush, 46, his son Lance Arvi Jackson Bush, 27, and Daniel Tai Houia, 47, denied the murder charge in the High Court at Hamilton on Tuesday.
