The case against a South Australian man charged over a fatal boat crash on the Murray River has been deemed complex, prompting a delay in court proceedings.
Alexander Ross Gill came before Adelaide Magistrates Court on Tuesday charged with causing death by dangerous driving related to the crash in February which killed Chad Gill.
The 37-year-old died when two boats collided about 10 kilometres upstream from Swan Reach, east of Adelaide.
A 40-year-old man in one of the boats was also hurt.
A prosecutor told the court on Tuesday that the Director of Public Prosecutions had deemed the case complex and asked for it to be adjourned until later this year.
He said the prosecution was also waiting on an affidavit from a marine safety expert.
Magistrate Simon Smart agreed to the delay, remanding Gill on continuing bail to appear again on August 20.
He also agreed to a defence application to vary Gill's bail conditions to allow him to travel interstate.
