The Calgary man accused of killing gas station attendant Maryam Rashidi in a hit-and-run was on bail for dangerous driving at the time.

Joshua Cody Mitchell, 20, was charged on Jan. 30, 2015 with dangerous driving, possession of stolen property — a vehicle — as well as driving without a licence and driving without insurance.

A justice of the peace released Mitchell on $2,000 cash bail following his January arrest. As part of his release conditions he was not allowed to be in a private vehicle without its registered owner.

Other outstanding charges include failure to appear in court in February and fraud under $5,000.

Mitchell is charged with criminal negligence causing death, dangerous driving causing death, hit and run causing death, possession of stolen property over $5,000 and theft in relation to the June 7 incident that claimed Rashidi's life.

Today, Mitchell made a brief court appearance over closed-circuit television. He'll appear in court again on Monday, June 15.
