New York — A man arrested in connection with a New York car crash that killed a rabbinical college student, his pregnant wife and their baby has been charged with criminally negligent homicide and other offenses.

Julio Acevedo was arraigned on Thursday in state Supreme Court in Brooklyn and was ordered held without bail. He was also charged with three counts of assault and other offenses.

He arrived in the city earlier on Thursday after agreeing to be returned from Pennsylvania, where he had surrendered on Wednesday.

Police in New York say Acevedo left the scene of Sunday's fatal crash. He's accused of speeding down a Brooklyn street and crashing into a car carrying 21-year-olds Nachman and Raizy Glauber.

Acevedo has told the Daily News he was fleeing someone who was trying to shoot at him.

The Glaubers died on Sunday. Their premature son was delivered by caesarean section and died on Monday.
