A man pleaded not guilty Friday to charges of uttering threats and criminal harassment in a case involving the father of Rehtaeh Parsons.

Two days were scheduled for the man's trial in Halifax starting on June 2, 2015.

Police have not publicly disclosed the name of the alleged victim, but Glen Canning, Parsons's father, says the charges relate to online threats he alleges were made against him last year.

The RCMP have said they began investigating last Aug. 2 after receiving a complaint from a 49-year-old man.

The 19-year-old man was arrested in April.

Parsons' parents say their daughter was cyberbullied and died after a suicide attempt.
