On Thursday the case was adjourned for three weeks, giving lawyers time to move the case to the Supreme Court, where Mr Singh will formally petition and be sentenced.

Mr Singh was initially charged with four cases of culpable driving which resulted in death in the days following the April 22nd accident.

Police charged him 33 additional offenses in August. On Thursday, District Attorney Jason Ong withdrew 27 charges.

During the brief mention on Thursday, Mr Singh appeared via video link in a green sweater and with humming hair. He did not speak during the entire procedure.

The case will be brought to trial on December 3rd.

Leading Senior Constable Lynette Taylor, Senior Constable Kevin King, and Constables Glen Humphris and Josh Prestney were killed in the Kew crash.

Senior Police Officer Kevin King, Police Officer Josh Prestney, Senior Police Officer Lynette Taylor and Police Officer Glen Humphris were all killed in the collision with the Eastern Freeway.

The four officers were in the emergency lane, preparing to arrest Porsche driver Richard Pusey, who was allegedly caught accelerating.

In a statement released by his lawyer in the days following the crash, Mr. Singh was said to have been “genuinely sorry and sad that four people lost their lives as a result of the collision”.

“He is very aware of the impact on those who have lost their lives, on families, friends and work colleagues.”

In August, Simiona Tuteru, a 49-year-old Frankston man, manager of Connect Logistics, was arrested and charged with four manslaughter related to the crash.

Police allege that Mr. Tuteru, who coordinated drivers at Connect Logistics, knew before the accident that Mr. Singh’s mental state had deteriorated due to lack of sleep and alleged drug use.

The court heard in October that prosecutors were interested in hearing Mr Singh and Mr Tuteru’s cases separately.

Mr. Pusey was given bail in October. He is being tried in the district court on charges of drug possession, reckless behavior that endangers serious injury and reckless behavior that endangers death related to alleged speeding.

He will also be tried for the rare offense of indignant public decency. Mr. Pusey has pleaded not guilty.
