The trial of Jamie Saxon over the 2017 murder of Dominik Schulze is expected to continue in Queensland's Supreme Court on Monday.

Saxon has pleaded not guilty.

The court has been told an argument broke out after Mr Schulze was hit by a car driven by Saxon's girlfriend in inner Brisbane in the early hours of October 6.

Mr Schulze had been standing in the middle of the road with his pants down following a night of drinking, crown prosecutor David Meredith told the court.

He said witnesses say they heard a "blood curdling" scream at the scene where Saxon allegedly stabbed Mr Schulze up to four times.

Defence barrister Kim Bryson told the jury in her opening statement there was no dispute Saxon killed Mr Schulze.

She said Saxon's motive would be contested during the trial.

A Perth man who fatally stabbed his one-time love rival claims he acted in self-defence because the victim had a "longstanding and visceral" hatred of him that had provoked repeated attacks. Daniel Carrington is on trial in the Supreme Court accused of murdering 38-year-old Ben Egan at a Northbridge apartment complex in April 2017.Prosecutors allege Mr Carrington "ambushed" Mr Egan as he entered the Newcastle Street complex, stabbing him seven times and leaving him with four chest wounds before running away.
