One of the men charged over the death of Pomare man Michael Mulholland is to make an application for electronic bail on his next appearance.
Lower Hutt District Court judge Peter Butler remanded Harem Rawiri Turi, 31, of Paraparaumu in custody until next month to find a suitable address for e-bail.
He had an address available in Wellington but Judge Butler said he thought that would be unsuitable.
Turi's lawyer Paul Surridge agreed and asked for the adjournment.
Turi is charged with manslaughter after Mr Mulholland was found with facial wounds in a driveway in Pomare on September 20 last year after he was punched.
Another man, Desmond Leaf, 30, is also charged and is due to appear in three weeks.
