A speeding driver who crashed into a hired car taking expectant parents to a New York City hospital has been convicted in the deaths of the couple and their baby, who was delivered alive after the wreck but didn’t survive, the AP reports.
Julio Acevedo was found guilty Thursday night of two counts of second-degree manslaughter and one count of criminally negligent homicide. The latter charge was related to the baby’s death.
Acevedo could face up to life in prison when he is sentenced on March 18.
Prosecutors estimated Acevedo was going 70 mph – more than twice the legal speed limit – when he smashed into a livery car in March 2013. Nachman and Raizy Glauber, both 21, were killed, and their son, Tanchem, delivered by cesarean section, was nifar a day later.
