PETA Airini Nocon will stand trial for manslaughter in January or February.

The trial dates were discussed in the Supreme Court, Rockhampton, yesterday as Justice Duncan McMeekin handed down a decision on what evidence would and wouldn't be used at trial.

The Boyne Island teen is pleading not guilty to the alleged slaying of her 19-year-old boyfriend Dylan James Scattergood.

Nocon, who was 18 then, allegedly stabbed Mr Scattergood at a Boyne Island address on August 13, 2009.
