Trial Delayed for Man Accused of Beating UND Former Student Body President

Adam Baker has been in a coma since the May 2 attack.

A man charged with second-degree assault for severely injuring a former UND student body president will be in court in September.

23-year-old Alexander Tuomisto of Saint Michael, Minnesota was supposed to be in court today, but his contested hearing was continued.

Tuomisto was arrested after 31-year-old Adam Baker suffered a head wound from an assault at a Saint Michael bar.

Tuomisto has posted a $200,000 bond on the assault charge. His next court date is September 27th.

According to Adam Baker's caringbridge site, he's being moved out of a Minneapolis trauma and into a rehab hospital.

Baker has been in a coma since May 2nd when he was assaulted. He has massive brain injuries.

A fund has been set up to help pay for Baker's medical expenses.

Donations can be made to any U.S. Bank branch.
