An arraignment on Thursday was once again postponed for Adam Harrison Hall, who is charged with murder and DUI in the February collision that killed .
The new date is now June 30. The first arraignment was scheduled for May 26.
Authorities say Hall, 27, had 10 kinds of drugs and medication in his system during the crash. Orange County sheriff's deputies arrested him at a Walgreens in Yorba Linda on May 24. Authorities spent more than three months investigating the crash, which drew national attention. Hall has been held at the Central Men's Jail in Santa Ana since his arrest.
Steves was killed while trying to rescue a dog in traffic Feb. 13. She is survived by her husband, John, and two teenagers, Jonathan and Hannah.
While much is known about Mara Steves, who has been characterized as a good Samaritan, very little has been told about Hall in the months since the accident at Moulton Parkway and Nueva Vista, a few blocks from Steves' home.
According to Hall's family members, who chose to remain anonymous and who contacted Patch after he was arrested, Hall is "not the monster he is being portrayed as."
Family members say Hall was living in Laguna Niguel at the time of the accident and was on his way to work that Sunday morning. He was working in the time share industry and had moved to Laguna Niguel from Placentia to be closer to his job, they said.
Hall was also "not on a pay phone at Walgreens" when he was arrested at the drugstore, as has been reported, family members said. He was at the store with his mother's boyfriend, an ex-police officer. In addition, his father was a police officer who "passed away tragically about six years ago," family members said.
His mother, who still lives in Placentia, works in education and is a "highly regarded member of the community and also a good Samaritan," they said.
And while Steves died at the scene, Hall was taken to the hospital and, according to family, "treated for a broken leg and nose."
He attended college and played a lot of sports and has two younger sisters, they said.
Family members also say that Hall maintains that he did not run the red light. They also say the accident has "devastated him and his family."
Hall has had two convictions for driving under the influence. After his second conviction, authorities warned Hall that he could face a murder charge if he killed someone while driving under the influence. If convicted, Hall faces a maximum of 21 years to life in state prison.
