A California judge has ordered Chris Brown to remain in an anger-management rehab programme and return to court in two months.

The judge scheduled the singer's next hearing for April 23 - after what is expected to be a brief assault trial in Washington.

Prosecutors have asked that Brown be sent to jail for violating probation with his October arrest in Washington. Brown and his bodyguard are accused of punching a man and breaking his nose outside a hotel in that incident.

Brown is on probation for his 2009 attack on his then-girlfriend, singer Rihanna.

His lawyers have asked the judge to await the outcome of the Washington case before hearing evidence on whether Brown should go to jail.
