The girlfriend of a man alleged to have been responsible for a horror crash in Sydney’s west that killed two siblings has had her bail tightened after being slapped with a string of fresh charges.
Cecil Park woman Tiana Savignano was arrested in dramatic circumstances outside court earlier this month after showing up to support her boyfriend Johnson Kokozian.
Police allege Mr Kokozian, 20, was in the driver’s seat of Mercedes when it collided head-on with a Toyota Echo shortly after 9pm in Heckenberg on September 1.
Alina Kauffman and her teen brother Ernesto died in the crash.
Ms Savignano was charged with concealing a serious indictable offence and hindering a police investigation following the crash.
Ms Savignano is not accused of causing the accident.
On Sunday, police charged Ms Savignano with filming part of a court hearing.
Police also issued her with a court attendance notice in relation to another 31 unrelated driving offences, including drink-driving.
The new charges include more than 10 counts of driving while using a mobile phone and driving while her licence was suspended, as well as driving with an unrestrained child in the car.
Ms Savignano is further accused of exceeding speeds of 20km/h above the speed limit while on a P1 licence, and three counts of driving recklessly and in a dangerous manner.
She briefly appeared in Liverpool Local Court on Tuesday when police tightened her bail conditions so that she is not allowed to occupy the driver’s seat of a car.
The filming and driving charges were adjourned until next month with the court hearing she must enter pleas on those occasions.
Meanwhile, the man who is alleged by police to have been in the passenger seat at the time of the fatal accident has had his bail conditions relaxed so he can work.
Cruz Pamoana Davis-Tuka, 21, was allegedly in the passenger seat of the black Mercedes allegedly being driven by his friend, Mr Kokozian, at the time of the crash.
He has been charged with concealing a serious indictable offence and hindering a police investigation.
Liverpool Local Court earlier this month heard a police witness had claimed Mr Kokozian was the driver, while Mr Davis-Tuka gave a conflicting story.
He appeared in court on Tuesday where he had his bail conditions relaxed so that he could leave home to work alongside his sister at a Moorebank business.
He will now be allowed to leave his home between 2pm and 10pm.
He will return to court later this year.
