Julio Acevedo Pleads Not Guilty To Manslaughter Charge In NYC Crash That Killed Couple, Baby

Posted: Updated:

NEW YORK — A driver has pleaded not guilty to three counts of manslaughter in a crash in New York City that killed a pregnant woman and her husband. The couple's premature baby was delivered after the wreck but died a day later.

Julio Acevedo (ah-seh-VAY'-doh) also pleaded not guilty Thursday to criminally negligent homicide.

A lesser charge, announced earlier this month, accuses him of leaving the scene of the accident in Brooklyn.

Police say Acevedo was speeding on March 3 before crashing into the hired car carrying Nachman (NAHK'-muhn) and Raizy Glauber (RAY'-zee GLOW'-bur). The defendant was later arrested in Bethlehem, Pa.

His family has described Acevedo as a loving, stay-at-home dad. His lawyer says it was a tragic accident and not a crime.
