The Cromwell driver charged with manslaughter for the death of Royalburn Farm butcher Tré Anderson has been transferred to the Invercargill High Court. 

The high court is expecting the case to appear on April 9. 

Driver Hayden Richard Hurst was initially charged with excess blood alcohol causing death in late January in relation to a crash between himself and Mr Anderson. 

Police now allege that the 28-year-old Mr Hurst had also taken ecstasy prior to colliding with Mr Anderson's vehicle, and the charge was upped to manslaughter on March 1.

The crash occurred in the morning of Saturday, December 16.
