Liam Jurrah has been committed to stand trial in the Supreme Court on a charge of assault causing serious harm, as well as three further counts of assault on three separate victims.
This is also the case for his co-accused, Christopher Walker and Josiah Fry.
Mr Walker's lawyer, Tania Collins, told the court Mr Walker will be pleading guilty to the 'cause serious harm' charge.
Mr Jurrah's family and supporters in the courtroom and waiting for him in the lobby accepted the news quietly but appeared downcast.
Outside the court defence counsel Jon Tippett QC told media that moving the case from the Court of Summary Jurisdiction into the Supreme Court is "unrelated to guilt". KIERAN FINNANE reports.

Report #5. Posted 6:45pm, July 24. See earlier reports below.
Basil Jurrah, alleged victim of an assault causing serious harm, with which Liam Jurrah and his co-accused are charged, in his evidence today mostly stuck to his guns that he had no intention of fighting at Little Sisters camp, and was unarmed.
However cracks appeared when the trouble underlying the on-going feuds amongst the Warlpiri families of Yuendumu was mentioned.
He went to Little Sisters for "smoke and grog", Basil Jurrah told the court. He denied getting weapons before he went.
Was it a lie that he had a machete in his hand, asked Jon Tippett QC, representing Liam Jurrah, in cross-examination this afternoon. Yes, said Basil Jurrah, who is at present in custody.
He agreed a fight took place and that he had seen Liam Jurrah and his co-accused Christopher Walker at Little Sisters, but to the proposition that he tried to fight Liam Jurrah, he said "I had no weapon".
However final witness for the day, Douglas Watson, said Basil Jurrah was armed with a nulla nulla when he went to Little Sisters along with five cars full of other people armed and intending to fight. KIERAN FINNANE reports.
