THE identity of a man accused of murdering the son of a high-ranking outlaw motorcycle gang member can now be revealed, and he has been ordered to stand trial.

Peter John Richardson, 51, of Parafield Gardens, appeared in the Adelaide Magistrates Court today by video link.

He pleaded not guilty to having murdered Kayne Cluse on January 8 during an alleged incident at Richardson’s home.

Mr Cluse — the son of a senior member of the NT chapter of the Hells Angels — died from his injuries soon after he was driven to the Lyell McEwen Hospital .

After the 18-year-old’s death, police and motorcycle gangs said the incident was not related to tensions and violence between the state’s outlaw groups .

Subsequently, a 32-year-old woman from Campbelltown was arrested on two counts of aggravated serious criminal trespass in a place of residence and one count of theft.

Police documents filed with the court accused her of committing the offences at the alleged murderer’s home on January 7 and 8.

The Advertiser understands it will be alleged she committed those offences with Mr Cluse, and that he died during a drug-related home invasion .

In March, the court opted to continue a suppression order on the alleged murderer’s identity to ensure “his safety and security”.

The decision left members of Mr Cluse’s family distraught .

Today, Magistrate Elizabeth Sheppard revoked the suppression order and, upon the entering of Richardson’s not guilty plea, ordered he stand trial.

Richardson was remanded in custody to face the Supreme Court next month.
