Brooklyn, NY -  A man arrested in connection with a car crash that killed a rabbinical college student, his pregnant wife and their baby was charged Thursday with criminally negligent homicide and other offenses.

Julio Acevedo was arraigned before a judge Thursday night in state Supreme Court in Brooklyn wearing a white T-Shirt, light blue hooded sweat shirt black sneakers. He was ordered held without bail.

Acevedo was also charged with three counts of assault and leaving the scene of an accident.

Judge Stephen Antignani granted an order of protection to a livery driver who was involved in the accident and suspended Acevedo’s driver’s license.

Acevedo had arrived in New York earlier Thursday after agreeing to be returned from Pennsylvania, where he had surrendered to police in the parking lot of a Bethlehem convenience store a day earlier.

Acevedo was accused of barreling down a Brooklyn street at 60 mph early Sunday and crashing into a hired car carrying Nachman and Raizy Glauber, who were on their way to a hospital.

The Glaubers, both 21, died Sunday. Their son, delivered by cesarean section, died Monday of extreme prematurity due to blunt-force injuries to his mother, who was seven months pregnant and was thrown from the hired car, the city medical examiner’s office said.

The hired car that had been carrying them had a stop sign, though it’s unclear whether the driver stopped. The driver was knocked unconscious.

At an appearance in Pennsylvania, Acevedo, 44, told Judge Kelly Banach that he had finished the 11th grade, was unemployed and lives in Brooklyn with his mother. He wore an orange jumpsuit and was shackled at the ankles and wrists.

His surrender was brokered by a friend who had been in touch with police earlier Wednesday. The friend met officers at New York’s Grand Central Terminal and led them to Acevedo in Bethlehem, about 80 miles away, police said. The friend had told police that Acevedo would surrender after consulting an attorney, but there wasn’t one with him when he turned himself in, police said.

Acevedo told the Daily News that he was fleeing a gunman who was trying to shoot at him when his borrowed BMW slammed into the Glaubers’ hired car. He told the newspaper he fled because he was worried he would be killed. But police said there were no reports of shots fired in the area at the time of the wreck.

The couple belonged to a close-knit ultra-Orthodox Jewish community in Brooklyn, which is home to the largest community of ultra-Orthodox Jews outside Israel, more than 250,000. They were members of the Satmar Hasidic sect.

Nachman Glauber, whose family founded a line of clothing for Orthodox Jews, was studying at a rabbinical college. Raizy Glauber grew up in a prominent rabbinical family.

The couple’s son was buried Monday near their graves, a community spokesman said. About a thousand community members turned out for the couple’s funeral a day earlier.

I feel so bad for the Dead, the family, and the devestated community that is already in midst a trauma of being targeted and attacked by authorities and having respected members of their community being serving (exceptionally long term) sentences for the way they choose to handle their children and their money.

I would feel Bad for this guy for being charged with Vehicular Manslaughter and Criminally Negligent Homicide when most others go free, including an unlicensed bus driver that killed 15 passengers a year ago and went free.

The reason I don't feel bad is because this guy is a clear threat to society.
He already killed one person, now he killed three others in a seperate incident. (never mind his DUI history).
This guy has a big very big chance of killing another.

#1, People like you are morons. Every neshama is priceless, and undertaking a project on behalf of two special neshamos doesn't devalue anyone else's. This incident struck a particular communal nerve because of the victims' age, circumstances of death and lack of offspring.

Please don't ruin this heartwarming outpouring of support due to your childish rants.

U r having the wrong focus my friend. Tragedies happen, including this one. This will not bring the couple back. Not that this guy is innocent, but u make it sound as if we caught a major terrorist. All these counts, as if now we gonna teach these terrorists a lesson.

1st The reason we are writing here a "sefer troah" is because the glauber couple didn't leave any children, like this there is something left in there name, and it will be a "zecus" for them every time it is read. 2nd It just shows you how close this community is that they are willing to spend the money in the name of a friend so his/her "nesumeh" should have a "zecus" this is a "chesed shel emes". your question should be directed to the ppl in that Nj community.

The fact baby, who was delivered premature immediately after the accident, died a day later allowed the police to add the one charge of manslaughter in the first degree.

"Nebach on you two. You really should be careful about taking your meds. Mental illness can often be somewhat controlled. But you must take your meds."

How dare you call someone mentally ill because you don't agree with his/her thinking! It's because of uneducated people like you who give a stigma to the mentally ill. I know dozens and dozens of frum people who are in the closet because of their mental illnesses. They will marry, have children and no one will say a word to their future mates. Then it will be too late when lives are destroyed.

Excellent question. Does anyone have an idea of what this means?

Yes number 21. Order of protection against violant people that might still want to see the livery driver of the 3 dead neshomos to also be dead or some revenge. Some people can not sit and look at him how he is alive and walking while he is a driver of which 3 people got killed so he needs some order pr protection. Very simple. You never know what one can do.

Is it possible the order of protection is against Acevado?

So it is only the leftist who can decide who it is appropriate to chastise?

Commenter one made a wholly inappropriate remark. One that was meant to be inflammatory. Commenter 9 was kind and was מלמד זכות that 1 was not bad, just he could not help himself because he is ill.

So yes, it is definitely a זכות for the נשמות that someone was דן לכף זכות the reason commenter posted an inflammatory remark.

I am not sure if there is a לימוד זכות for you, though. You are just plain hateful.

Certainly. The livery driver is the only living witness who can testify against him. A low-life like Acevado would be the kind to try getting rid of him.

As inappropriate and misguided as #1 was, I fail to see how attributing his/her words to a mental or emotional disorder helped re-elevate the conversation to the level any mention of this tragedy deserves.

Not that your every word of your response to my comment cleared that hurdle either, but obviously we all a little on edge over this accident.

Yehi zichram baruch.

What was Raizy Glauber's A"H" maiden name? It has not as yet been mentioned and her family too is grieving.
The picture shows such an eidel couple with chein; it is so sad.
There is speculation re a STOP sign and whether livery
did not stop. But if the other driver is in custody why would he fear him?

Hashem and neshomas are not the same thing. blood crying out to Gd is not the same as neshomas feeling pain. It is a ridiculous explanation.

you're right, the chassidishe community is made up of many vigilantes who go out and kill for revenge. happens all the time.

You're watching too, too much bad television!
