A man accused of kidnapping and raping a young European tourist in South Australia will answer the charges in August.
The 52-year-old allegedly snatched and attacked the woman east of Adelaide in February after responding to an advertisement she had posted online seeking work.
He came before the Adelaide Magistrates Court on Friday where his counsel asked for a delay to allow for DNA evidence to be finalised.
Prosecutor Emma Roper said the material should be available to both parties and the court by August 8.
The case will return to court on August 18.
The accused man, who can't be identified, is charged with three counts of rape and one of unlawfully detaining the 24-year-old tourist.
The backpacker had been missing for a day before she was found at a Murray Bridge motel thanks to a tip-off from a member of the public.
She managed to get a desperate message to her family in Europe and another to a friend in Queensland during the ordeal, providing clues about her location.
After she was found, police swooped on a farmhouse in Meningie and arrested the man.
The tourist had posted an ad on classifieds website Gumtree in search of work in Victoria, and her alleged captor responded, police say.
