A bail review that was scheduled to take place today at B.C. Supreme Court in Chilliwack for a man appealing his murder conviction has been postponed.

The lawyer for Dustin Moir, 27, said he needs more time to review new information that he received on Friday. A new date for the bail review has not yet been set.

Moir, 27, was convicted in February 2010 of the 2005 murder of Chelsey Acorn, 14, of Abbotsford.

He received an automatic life sentence with no chance of parole for 25 years.

Moir won his application for an appeal in January, just nine days after his father, Jesse Blue West, 60, was also convicted of first-degree murder in the death of Acorn.

The review today will determine whether Moir will be released from prison while awaiting his new trial, for which a date has not yet been set. Moir was out on bail during his first trial.
