Name suppression continues for a teenage girl charged with killing a man in Christchurch last year.

The teenage girl, 40-year-old Deborah Jean Tihema and 22-year-old Cyle Robert Jetson are jointly charged with the murder of Pierclaudio Raviola.

He was found badly bashed in the Sumner Surf Lifesaving Club car park in March last year.

Justice Rachel Dunningham says they’re awaiting further reports before suppression can be reconsidered.

A tentative trial date has been set for September next year.
