Tevita Kātoa of Ma’ufanga is alleged to have killed Pita ‘Aipolo in 23 August 2018.
He has pleaded not guilty to his charges of murder, manslaughter and causing grievous bodily harm, the Kele’a newspaper has reported.
‘Aipolo was rushed to hospital where he died from his injuries, one month later.
The court was told the incident occurred after the accused was denied entry into the nightclub because he was too drunk.
A security guard at the bar told the court he saw Kātoa allegedly beating the deceased.
