Julio Acevedo, man in crash that killed Brooklyn couple, indicted
The man accused of hitting a car in a crash that killed a Brooklyn couple and their newborn baby was indicted today.
Brooklyn District Attorney Charles Hynes said that Julio Acevedo was charged with fleeing the scene of an accident where death results.
Prosecutors say Acevedo drove a BMW while speeding into a livery cab March 3, which killed Nathan Glauber, 21, and his pregnant wife Raizy, 21. She was pregnant with their child, who was delivered prematurely but died the next day.
Police picked up Acevedo in Pennsylvania, bringing him back to New York March 7.
Critics had called for harsh charges in the case. Hynes noted that they are still presenting evidence to the grand jury in the deaths of the couple and the child.
Acevedo is in jail without bail, according to the D.A.’s office.
He faces a maximum sentence of 25 years to life in prison, prosecutors said.
