A man has denied murdering a 21-year-old man who died after being knocked down by a car in Cambridge.
Alex Jeffery, of Orchard Road, Melbourn, was hit after being involved in a fight outside the Cambridge City Hotel on Downing Street, on 1 November.
He died in hospital a week later.
Jack Mulcahy, 24, from Capulet Court, Huntingdon, denied murder at Cambridge Crown Court on Monday. He also denied one count of actual bodily harm and five drug-related charges.
Officers said Mr Jeffery was hit outside the four-star hotel, next to John Lewis, at about 03:40 GMT.
A post-mortem examination showed he died from head injuries.
Mr Mulcahy also faces one count of actual bodily harm relating to another man injured on 1 November.
He is also charged with supplying cocaine, MDMA (ecstasy), ketamine and cannabis, as well as possession of cocaine.
A trial, set for April 27 at the city's Crown court, is expected to last up to 10 days.
