Julio Acevedo, the man accused of mowing down an expectant couple and their newborn in a Brooklyn, New York, hit-and-run accident earlier this month, was indicted Tuesday on charges of leaving the scene of an accident where death results.
More serious charges, including criminally negligent homicide, were expected to be filed later, WABC reported.
Acevedo, 44, went on the lam for three days following the March 3 crash that killed Raziel and Nachman Glauber. Their child, delivered via emergency C-section, survived the crash but died the next day.
Acevedo surrendered to federal authorities and the NYPD in Pennsylvania last week. He claimed he was unaware that the Glaubers, both 21, died until he saw media reports of the hit-and-run on television.
The 44-year-old, who has a lengthy rap sheet, contended he was driving away from a rival who was shooting at him when he slammed into the taxi the Glaubers were riding in.
