Davison is accused of the asphyxiation of Justin Varian in the same year and administering a lethal dose of medicine to his friend, Anrich Burger in 2013.

Varian suffered from motor neuron disease while Burger had become a paraplegic after a car accident.

In 2006, he served time under house arrest in New Zealand for assisting in the death of his cancer-stricken mother, Pat.

The matter has been postponed to the end of May, to begin the procedure to transfer it to the Western Cape High Court.
