The man accused of killing a pastor’s son in an attempted grow rip in Langley last year was supposed to be in Surrey Provincial Court on Tuesday morning.

But Jesse Hill’s court appearance for a bail hearing in a jammed and standing-room only courtroom 103 was put off until Jan. 29.

He remains behind bars and has been in jail since his arrest in October.

Hill, 23, of Surrey faces a second degree murder charge in the death of Taylor Johnson.

He also faces charges of break and enter with intent, disguise with intent and discharge of a firearm with intent.

Johnson, 21, was found shot to death on Feb. 26, 2013 in a 200 Street home, which contained a grow-op. Johnson was the caretaker of the grow-op. He was the son of a pastor in Delta and had no prior record.

During a press conference, his dad, Paul, said his son had made some new friends of questionable nature.

Taylor Johnson also leaves behind his stepmother and five siblings.
