PENTICTON - Ronald Teneycke made a video appearance in Penticton court today, facing a new charge even though incarcerated at the Kent maximum security penitentiary in Agassiz.

Teneycke, making a video appearance, claimed to be unaware of the new allegation, appearing relaxed, healthy and almost jocular in blue jeans and a blue sweat shirt.

“Can you tell me why I’m here? I don’t know why I’m here,” Teneycke asked Judge Michelle Daneliuk, who noted a warrant had been issued for Teneycke in the matter.

“I’ve got a warrant? Better come and get me,” Teneycke said cheerfully.

Teneycke has been charged with failing to comply with a non-communication order with Oliver resident Wayne Belleville.

Belleville received a letter allegedly sent by Teneycke prior to Christmas.

Belleville was Teneycke’s last victim prior to his arrest following a crime spree in the South Okanagan in 2015. Teneycke shot him in the back, stole his truck and left him for dead after Belleville stopped to offer him a ride.

Prior to being read the charge, Teneycke asked if he was “going to be arrested” several times.

When asked if he intended to get counsel, he replied, “Well I guess so, because you’re going to put me in jail for this one, aren’t you?”

“Would you like me to come down there so I can face my accuser or would you like video again?” he asked, interrupting the judge at one point.

Teneycke has three weeks to get counsel. He faces an additional order not to contact Wayne Belleville, with his next court appearance scheduled for Feb. 13.
