A final decision on whether a manslaughter prosecution over the death of a South Albury woman goes ahead won't be known for at least another month.
The case against Greg Trimmings was mentioned in Albury Local Court on Tuesday, three months after a special witness hearing.
Forensic pathologist Dr Jane Vuletic testified there was a credible link between the victim's liver cirrhosis and the subdural hematoma that ultimately killed the mother-of-three.

After the hearing, the case against Trimmings, 44, was referred back to the Director of Public Prosecutions for review.
DPP representative Aaron Thomas told magistrate Richard Funston that Tuesday's proceedings initially were "supposed to be a committal for trial".
But further representations on Trimmings' case were made on Tuesday morning.
"The alternate application is to adjourn for a month to consider those representations," Mr Thomas said.
Trimmings, who was granted bail on August 14 in the wake of July's special witness hearing, appeared in court on Tuesday supported by his mother.
Until August, he had been bail refused ever since Ms Driver's death in April, 2018, from head injuries police had alleged were inflicted by the accused in the couple's Olive Street unit.
Mr Funston asked why the adjournment was necessary, to which Mr Thomas replied there was the possibility of "no further proceedings".
For now, Trimmings continues to face the charge of manslaughter.
The case was adjourned to November 19.
