The suspect in a car crash that killed a pregnant New York City woman, her husband and ultimately her baby was transported from Pennsylvania, where he was arrested, back to Brooklyn on Thursday, local media reported.

Police say Julio Acevedo, 44, fled the scene after a speeding BMW he was driving slammed into a livery cab carrying Nachman and Raizy Glauber, both 21, on Sunday. The couple died that day, and their premature son died on Monday.

Acevedo waived extradition at a hearing in Allentown, Pa., on Thursday morning and was taken to the 78th Precinct station in Brooklyn, according to the New York Daily News.

In the hearing, Acevedo told the judge he had finished the 11th grade, was unemployed and lives in Brooklyn with his mother, The Associated Press reported.

Acevedo, who served about a decade in prison for manslaughter in the 1990s, surrendered to authorities on Wednesday in the parking lot of a convenience store in Bethlehem, Pa.

Brooklyn District Attorney Charles Hynes told the Daily News that his office would levy the highest possible charge on the man.

“When we arraign the defendant, we will announce that we have charged him with the most serious crime available based on the facts and a pending further review of the evidence,” Hynes said.
