Police allege Liam Teau Ariki Strickland, 21, fatally hit pedestrian Dean Amies, 46, whilst fleeing from police.
Amies died when he was hit by a stolen van at the intersection of Hawke St and Shaw Ave.
A city-wide manhunt for Strickland had been ongoing until his arrest on August 16 by armed police.
Strickland appeared in the Christchurch District Court via video-link on August 17 and made no application for bail.
Strickland has been charged with murder, dangerous driving, assaulting a police officer, unlawfully taking a van, driving recklessly, failing to stop for police, driving whilst disqualified, and unlawfully taking and receiving a vehicle.
Strickland has yet to enter a plea on the nine charges he faces.
Judge Jane McMeeken remanded Strickland in custody to appear in the High Court on September 6.
A police investigation into Amies’ death continues.
