A bail application by a Brocklehurst resident who stands accused of attempted murder has been denied.
Kristopher Teichrieb, 39, had his application for judicial interim release turned down Thursday morning in provincial court by Judge Stephen Harrison.
A construction contractor, Teichrieb has been in custody at KRCC since he was involved in an altercation on June 19. He is alleged to have assaulted Jessie Simpson, 18, with a baseball bat after seeing the teen in his driveway.
The Savona teen has remained on life support at RIH since then and his family says his prospects for recovery are poor. The charge against Teichieb could be elevated to murder if Simpson does not survive.
A publication ban has been imposed on details arising from the bail hearing.
The accused man will next appear in court Aug. 11 when a date will be set for trial.
