The woman accused of setting fire to Dana Vulin will take the case to trial after she pleaded not guilty this morning to the alleged attack.

Natalie Dimitrovska, 28, entered a plea of not guilty to a charge of grievous bodily harm with intent when she faced Perth Magistrate's Court by video link from Bandyup Women's Prison where she has spent the past 11 months in custody.

The case will go to trial in the District Court.

Miss Dimitrovska was arrested at Perth Airport on February 27 over the alleged attack on Ms Vulin, who police say was doused in methylated spirits and set alight in her Rivervale apartment 11 days earlier.

Miss Dimitrovska's lawyer David Manera said he was still awaiting a medical report and a new statement from Ms Vulin.

Prosecutors told the court there had been delays with the medical report as Ms Vulin was still receiving treatment.

Miss Dimitrovska, who has been remanded in custody, will appear in the Perth District Court on April 19.
