The 14-year-old charged over a fatal crash in central Masterton has been remanded in custody for two more weeks.
In the Masterton District Court today, lawyer Jock Blathwayt asked for a remand for two more weeks, indicating that "pleas will be entered".
The youth is charged with dangerous driving causing the deaths of Hoani Korewha and Pacer Willacy-Scott, both 15, on January 31, and with dangerous driving causing injury, failing to stop and getting into a vehicle unlawfully.
Mr Blathwayt said bail was "still being worked through with the assistance of Rangitane".
Judge Tony Walsh remanded the accused until April 6 at 3pm.
"At that stage we will make further progress on these charges; that is what is expected to happen," the judge said.
Judge Walsh said it was "likely there will be a bail application on that day", and consideration would be given to bail terms.
"I hope it is going well for you in the centre; just take each day as it comes," he said.
The accused's parents were in court supporting him and he embraced them before returning to custody.
