A MAN charged with the one-punch murder of a promising Melbourne University student will challenge CCTV footage of the killing, a court has heard.

Kyle Zandipour, 28, is accused of murdering 21-year-old Joshua Hardy outside a St Kilda Rd McDonald's in October last year.

Mr Zandipour had been at home playing video games with a friend before they went to

McDonald’s to get something to eat shortly after midnight. While there he is accused of fatally bashing Mr Hardy in an incident that was captured on CCTV.

But defence lawyer George Defteros told the Melbourne Magistrates Court today Mr Zandipour would challenge the vision.

“The video footage is inconclusive, it doesn't show contact,” he said.

Nine witnesses will also be cross-examined during a three day committal hearing set down for May.

They will include Mr Zandipour's childhood friend Matthew Bell who is a key prosecution witness.

Police allege that after pushing Mr Hardy to the ground following an altercation Mr Zandipour kicked him several times and stomped on his head causing massive brain damage.

Mr Zandipour, who appeared in court via videolink from the Melbourne Remand Centre, has been in custody since the attack.

He was denied bail by Supreme Court judge Bernard Bongiorno shortly before Christmas.
