It will be another month before the teen accused of driving the car that killed a 15-year-old Dartmouth boy will be able to enter a plea on the various charges he is facing.
Matthew Lesley Grimm was scheduled to enter the plea at Dartmouth provincial court yesterday, but the matter was adjourned until Aug. 27.
Grimm, 18, is charged with dangerous operation of a motor vehicle, two counts of breach of an undertaking, one count of breach of probation and one count of failing to stop at the scene of an accident.
The charges are in relation to the May 16 incident that killed David Alexander Julien, 15, of Dartmouth.
Julien, a Prince Andrew high school student, was in the back seat of a white Honda Accord when it crashed into a pole on Cranberry Crescent in Dartmouth.
Grimm, who is from Cole Harbour, was arrested the day after the incident and spent two weeks at the Burnside jail before getting bail on June 2.
Grimm was released with a surety of an unknown amount.
