Zachary Wittke has been denied bail after a collision that took the life of a 65-year-old woman.

Wittke is facing multiple charges after a collision in late September including dangerous operation of a vehicle causing death, theft of a motor vehicle, flight from police, and first degree murder. The first degree murder charge was laid against him earlier this week prior to the bail hearing.

Police say Wittke had stolen a vehicle and fled the scene of one collision before getting into a fatal collision in Arnprior.

Wittke is set to appear in a Pembroke court over video-chat on November 15th.
