AAP logoAAP 28/09/2016

Three people accused of murdering a man near a Perth train station have pleaded not guilty.

Patrick "Paddy" Slater, 26, died in hospital after he was attacked with star pickets, screwdrivers and rocks following a brawl near Elizabeth Quay Station in the early hours of January 27.

Robert Christopher James Pickett, Christopher James Birdsall and Clinton Fredrick Mead entered pleas of not guilty in Stirling Gardens Magistrates Court on Wednesday and will make their first appearance in the WA Supreme Court on November 14.

Dylan Anthony and Stefan Lazba Mead also appeared but did not enter pleas and will return to court next week.

Three youths - including a 12-year-old boy, who was 11 at the time and is believed to be one of the youngest people ever charged with murder in Australia - have also been charged over Mr Slater's death.

It is alleged Mr Slater died from a "penetrating injury to the chest".
