Sep 30, 2010 - ACCUSED HIT-AND-RUN DRIVER IN COURT [Daniel Carter]

The 19-year-old woman arrested in connection with the hit-and-run outside of Stavros lounge that killed 21-year-old Daniel Carter of Prince Albert made a brief appearance before a full courtroom on Wednesday.

Danielle Nadine Chamakese, of Pelican Lake, is charged with criminal negligence causing death and failure to stop at the scene of an accident.

The thinly built teen, with short hair and glasses wearing a black hoodie, appeared before Judge G.M. Morin just for a couple of minutes until court decided to adjourn her appearance until next month.

She was taken into police custody last Friday, almost a week after the accident and appeared before a justice of the peace on Saturday where she was released on an undertaking with several conditions.

Carter's mother, Karen Anthony, who was present in the courtroom on Wednesday holding a framed picture of Carter, said she had nothing to say about the proceedings.

"All I know is that I worried my worry stone in three pieces, I need a new one," she said holding her hand out to show a brown stone that had shattered in three.

She said it was her natural reaction to squeeze the stone when she heard Chamakese's appearance was adjourned.

Carter was run down by a silver vehicle on Sept. 19 on the 200 block of 14th Street West as he was walking to meet friends at Belly up Bar and Gill around 1:30 a.m.

He was taken to Royal University Hospital in Saskatoon with serious head trauma and succumbed to his injuries the next day.

Friends and family gathered for Carter's funeral on Saturday.

Chamakese is scheduled to appear in Prince Albert provincial court on Oct. 27.
