An Adelaide man has denied he murdered a truck hire businessman, who had links to the Hells Angels motorcycle gang.
Jesse Ray Penhall appeared via video-link in Adelaide Magistrates Court on Friday, pleading not guilty to the 2017 murder of David Norris.
Another man, who cannot be named, pleaded guilty to impeding the murder investigation and will appear in the Supreme Court for sentence.
Penhall, 40, is accused of killing Mr Norris, 39, at his truck hire firm in Salisbury on September 9 last year.
Police said the victim was subjected to an extremely violent attack, but haven't disclosed how he died or the motive for the murder.
In 2008, Penhall survived an ambush in which he was shot 15 times when he was confronted by four men in the small SA town of Paskeville.
With wounds to his neck, shoulder, hands and stomach, he managed to stagger into the Paskeville Hotel to get help.
