SHAH ALAM: An Indonesian security guard has claimed trial to murdering AmBank officer Norazita Abdul Talib October last year.

La Ode Ardi Rasila, 36, was brought before High Court judge Justice Akhtar Tahir on Tuesday.

He is accused of murdering Norazita at the AmBank branch in USJ Sentral, Subang Jaya between 6pm and 6.30pm on Oct 23, 2013.

La Ode is charged under Section 302 of the Penal Code and faces the mandatory death sentence upon conviction.

The accused also pleaded not guilty to a second charge of committing the scheduled offence of robbery and allegedly firing a shot from a pump gun with the intention to kill Norazita, an offence under Section 3 of the Firearms Act 1971.

The section carries a mandatory death sentence upon conviction, even if no injury was inflicted.

Justice Akhtar fixed June 23 to 27 for trial and set May 7 for case management.
