A man charged in connection with a fatal hit-and-run in Burnaby has been denied bail.
25-year-old Emily Sheane was on her way home from a late-night restaurant shift when Ibrahim Ali allegedly crashed his Range Rover into her car running through a red light.
RCMP say Ali’s car “was obtained fraudulently.”
Sheane was killed March 9th, while driving eastbound through a green light on Deer Lake Parkway, as she returned home from her job at Joe Fortes.
Her vehicle was struck by a grey Range Rover, which allegedly ran a red light and slammed into her vehicle at Willingdon Avenue just before midnight.
A man and woman were observed fleeing the accident scene.
Ali and a second person were arrested weeks later in Creston after a motel operator became suspicious when their claims about being in a car accident and home address didn’t add up.
Ali is well known to police in the region, has a lengthy record of criminal charges dating back to 2008, and is a known associate of the U.N. gang.
He had also been charged on two separate occasions in the months leading up to the crash for driving while prohibited with a suspended license.
