Matthew Hyrup is facing a new charge this morning of attempted murder.
Hyrup is also being charged with assault in the first degree, unlawful sexual penetration, and sodomy.
Police say he beat his 18 month-old stepson, Cayden, repeatedly in February of this year.
In an earlier court date, Hyrup pleaded not guilty to the charges.
Hyrup could be back in court as early as Tuesday to hear his new charges.
As for Cayden, he was released from a Portland hospital several weeks ago and is said to be doing much better.
