Julio Acevedo was indicted today on charges of “leaving the scene of an incident without reporting where death results” after allegedly causing the fatal hit-and-run that killed Williamsburg couple Nathan and Raizi Glauber, both 21, and their premature baby who was born after the accident.

Due to his prior criminal record — he was arrested in February on charges of drunken driving — he faces a maximum sentence of 25 years-to-life in prison.

According to NY1, Acevedo’s license was not suspended following his previous arrest, due to the presiding judge declining to do so. Justice Michael Gary of the State Supreme Court reportedly claimed that the judge at Acevedo’s next court date could change the ruling.

Acevedo is accused of driving the grey 2010 BMW that slammed into the livery cab carrying Nathan and Raizi Glauber, both 21, at Kent Avenue and Wilson Street in Williamsburg, killing both, injuring the cab driver, and requiring an emergency Cesarean section on six-months-pregnant Raizi. The baby boy, named after his father, managed to survive for one day before dying on Monday, March 4.

The three victims were buried in Orange County, NY; the 32-year-old cab driver remains hospitalized at Bellevue Hospital.

In a phone interview with ABC News while still on the run, Acevedo said that his “heart goes out to [the victims]” and claimed that he was speeding that night in an effort to escape someone who was shooting at him. The NYPD has not confirmed any reports of gunshots being fired in the area at the time.
