At Belfast Crown Court, 60-year-old Thomas Patrick Valliday pleaded not guilty to trying kill Mr Tohill on 15 March last year when he sustained multiple slash and stab wounds to his neck and body.
Valliday, from Candahar Lodge on Elgin Street in Belfast, also denied wounding Martine McVeigh and Darren Tyler with intent to cause grievous bodily harm, possessing a knife on the Falls Road, assaulting Angela Wright and a police officer.
None of the alleged facts relating to the case were heard in court on Monday but previous hearings have heard how the injuries arose during an incident at the Celtic Bar in west Belfast.
Judge David McFarland released Valliday on continuing bail and said the trial should take place in February next year.
