Brenton Harrison Tarrant changed his plea to guilty at a hearing at the end of March.

Justice Mander today announced his next nominal court date would be delayed.

That's to allow time to consult with victims and family members who are currently overseas and may not be able to travel to New Zealand to be present at the sentencing if they wish to be.
