An independent psychiatric report will be prepared for an Adelaide man who has admitted to killing his daughter.
Petrit Lekaj appeared by video link in the Supreme Court on Monday where he reaffirmed an early guilty plea to the murder of Sabrina Lekaj.
The 20-year-old was found dead in a car near the family's suburban Kidman Park property in July.
Her father was next to her in the car with a serious abdominal injury and was treated in the Royal Adelaide Hospital.
The 49-year-old was later remanded in custody.
Defence counsel Ben Sale asked the court on Monday for the necessary time to secure the psychiatric report ahead of sentencing submissions.
He said there had been some delays because of his client's health.
Justice Trish Kelly adjourned the case until February 4.
