The teenager accused of the violent carjacking of an elderly woman has pleaded not guilty to aggravated robbery in the Auckland District Court on Wednesday.
Lily Pritchard-Davis, 17, faces a number of charges relating to the alleged attack on 65-year-old Nancy Voon, and will stand trial next year.
Ms Voon was hospitalised following the attack in Panmure in September. She suffered a broken nose, broken teeth and concussion.
Her family says she is now out of hospital and is slowly recovering from her injuries.
