KAMLOOPS - A scheduled bail hearing for the Kamloops man accused of beating a teen over the head with a baseball bat has been adjourned until December.

The details of the proceedings can't be published due to a court-ordered publication ban, but according to court documents Kristopher Teichrieb is facing a new charge stemming from an incident on Oct. 21.

Court documents show the alleged offence happened while Teichrieb was in custody. He's facing one charge of "counselling an indictable offence not committed" in Surrey.

The information on the charge was sworn yesterday, Nov. 24.

A bail hearing was set to take place today in Vancouver Supreme Court. A live feed of the hearing was broadcast to a Kamloops courtroom, but the hearing was adjourned until the week of Dec. 5.

Teichrieb is charged with attempted murder and assault with a weapon.

On June 19, Jessie Simpson, then 18 years old from Savona, was badly beaten on Teichrieb's Brocklehurst property. Friends and family of Simpson say he was attending a friend's graduation party when the confrontation occurred.

Simpson has been in a coma ever since.
