Satmar Couple Killer Charged in NY

Friday, March 8th, 2013

Julio Acevedo, who had been arrested in connection with a car crash that killed a Stamar husband and wife and their unborn baby was charged Thursday with criminally negligent homicide, as well as three counts of assault and leaving the scene of an accident. Acevedo’s driver’s license was suspended.

Acevedo was arraigned in state Supreme Court in Brooklyn and was ordered held without bail.

State Supreme Court Judge Stephen Antignani granted an order of protection to the livery driver in whose car Nathan and Raizy Glauber were sitting at the time of the crash.

Acevedo had been brought to New York from Pennsylvania earlier on Thursday, after surrendering to police in the parking lot of a Bethlehem convenience store.

Acevedo is accused of speeding down a Williamsburg, Brooklyn street at 60 mph past midnight last Sunday, and crashing into a car service carrying Nathan and Raizy Glauber to a hospital.

Both husband and wife, 21, died on Sunday. Their son, delivered by cesarean section, died Monday. His mother was seven months pregnant and was thrown from the car, the NYC medical examiner’s office stated.

The car service came to a stop sign, and not clear if the driver stopped.

The driver was knocked unconscious in the crash.

Suspect in Williamsburg Lethal Hit and Run to Surrender

Wednesday, March 6th, 2013

Julio Acevedo, 44, suspected of fleeing the scene of the crash that killed Satmar hasidic couple Nathan and Raizy Glauber and their unborn baby in Williamsburg, Brooklyn, told the Daily News on Tuesday that he was planning to surrender, even as police continued their search for him.

Acevedo said that he was speeding away from a gunman who was trying to shoot at him early Sunday when the accident with the car service carrying the Glaubers happened.

He said he fled the scene because he was afraid of being killed by his pursuers, and didn’t know the couple had been killed until he saw it in newspapers.

“My heart goes out to them,” Acevedo told the Daily News on the phone. “I didn’t know they died until I saw the news.”

The friend who arranged the call to the newspaper, Derrick Hamilton, told AP that Acevedo is “meeting with a lawyer right now, they are going to arrange how to turn himself in.”

Police say Acevedo was driving a BMW going at least 60 mph when he crashed the car carrying Nachman and Raizy Glauber, both 21. They died Sunday, and their premature son died Monday. The car service was near a stop sign, and it’s not clear whether the driver stopped, since he was rushing the couple to the hospital, after Raizel had been complaining that she could not feel her unborn baby’s movements.

The Daily News pointed out that Acevedo was arrested last month on a charge of driving while under the influence.

He served close to 10 years in prison in the 1990s for the manslaughter shooting of the original “50 Cent,” whose nickname was taken up by the rapper Curtis Jackson.
