Daren Lorke has been ordered to stand trial over the 2017 stabbing murder of Adelaide Hills man Kevin Skeyhill.

Mr Lorke is accused of laying in wait for his 51 year old Tungkillo neighbour, Mr Skeyhill back in September, before allegedly stabbing him to death in his driveway.

The 52 year old appeared in the Adelaide Magistrates court on Friday and pleaded not guilty to murder, Lorke insisting he acted in self defence.
