The three men charged with the murder of Mohammed Aqil Mahdi will go on trial in June.
A dog walker found the body of Camden man Mohammed - who was better known as Aqil - in Navigation Road near Bow Lock on November 6 last year.
The 22-year-old was pronounced dead at the scene.
The trio - aged 18, 21 and 28 respectively - were subsequently charged with the murder.
All three appeared at the Old Bailey on November 12, where it was confirmed that they were associates of the deceased.
Each defendant indicated a not guilty plea to a hearing held at Southwark Crown Court on January 28.
A trial date of June 6 has been set by the same court.
All three defendants were remanded back into custody until a pre-trial review on May 6.
