A 69-year-old man who allegedly hit another man with his car has faced a Melbourne court on a murder charge.
Anthony Richard Dockerty, 63, died after being hit by a car in Thornbury on December 2 last year.
Balwyn North man Joseph Drago was arrested on Monday following a police investigation into whether Mr Dockerty was deliberately hit.
Drago has never been in custody before, his lawyer told a brief hearing in the Melbourne Magistrates Court on Tuesday.
He will next appear for a committal mention on December 2.
