Officers from the NYPD arrested Julio Acevedo, 44, in Bethlehem, Pa. on March 6 in connection with the hit-and-run vehicular deaths of a woman who was seven months pregnant, her husband, and their unborn child. The hit-and-run occurred in Brooklyn just after midnight on March 2, according to CBS News.
The couple was on their way to the hospital on the night of the fatal crash. Their child was delivered by cesarean section after the hit-and-run, but died the day after the crash.
Immediately after his arrest, Acevedo was charged with leaving the scene of an accident.
Acevedo had a hearing yesterday in Pa. where he was held without bail and further charged with being a fugitive from justice.
Today, Acevedo had an extradition hearing to begin the process of having him returned to N.Y. Acevedo waived extradition at that hearing and will be returning to New York City.
Acevedo is accused of speeding down a Brooklyn street at 60 mph early Sunday and crashing into a car carrying Nachman and Raizy Glauber. The Glaubers, both 21 years old, died Sunday, and their premature son, delivered by cesarean section, died Monday.
Only last month, Acevedo was arrested and charged with a D.U.I. That case hasn’t come to trial yet.
Acevedo also spent about ten years behind bars in the 1990s for shooting a Brooklyn criminal who went by the nickname “50 Cent,” which was to become the inspiration for rapper Curtis Jackson's stage name.
