BRANDON -- A court date has yet to be set for a 19-year-old inmate who was charged after a fellow inmate was beaten into a coma at the Brandon Correctional Centre.
Brandon police said that's because the injured man's condition could worsen and more serious charges could be laid.
Police said on July 10, a 24-year-old man was punched in the head, causing him to fall to the ground at the Brandon Correctional Centre. Once the man was on the ground, he was kicked in the head.
"There has been no change in his condition since we laid the charges," Const. TrevoràRobins said, adding setting a court date has been put off in case the victim's condition deteriorates.
The victim is still in a coma in a Winnipeg hospital. He was not medically induced into a coma, but suffered the injury as a direct result of the blows.
