Ashley Hyatt’s killer accused of breaching bail conditions

Bail breach alleged to have occurred in Abbotsford earlier this month.

The teen convicted of killing Ashlee Hyatt is now accused of breaching her bail.

It is alleged that the young woman, who cannot be identified under the Youth Criminal Justice Act, breached a condition to abstain from the consumption or possession of alcohol, illegal drugs or prescription drugs not intended for her. The offence is alleged to have occurred on March 8 in Abbotsford.

The young woman made her first court appearance in Kelowna on the charge this week and is expected to return on April 15, the same week she is to be sentenced for killing Hyatt.

Hyatt, 16, died after being wounded in the neck at a June 2010 house party in Peachland.

During the trial last year, the court heard the accused, then 16, had been drinking heavily and arguing with a number of girls who said she’d been unfaithful to her boyfriend prior to Hyatt being fatally wounded.

The youth was found guilty of manslaughter in November at the conclusion of the three-week trial. A psychological assessment was requested following the conviction, and will be used to determine whether or not the teen will be sentenced as an adult.
