Killer Fals to Evoke Sympathy

NEW YORK (AP) — A man wanted for a hit-and-run crash in New York City that killed a pregnant woman and her husband was arrested Wednesday, authorities said.
New York City police said they arrested the suspected driver Julio Acevedo at a mini-mart in Bethlehem, Pa.
Acevedo allegedly was speeding down a Brooklyn street in a BMW at 60 mph early Sunday when he collided with a car carrying Nachman and Raizy Glauber, both 21. They died Sunday, and their premature son died Monday.

Acevedo was arrested last month on a charge of driving while under the influence, and that case is pending. He served about a decade in prison in the 1990s for manslaughter.

Acevedo first claimed he was sorry, didn't know the couple had died and said he was turning himself in to authorities.  But after Acevedo failed to contact police he was arrested at the mini-mart.  It was not immediately known if the 44-year-old Acevedo had a lawyer.
