Nachman and Raizi Glauber

New York City Police officials were awaiting the return of a man arrested Wednesday in Pennsylvania in connection with a hit and run that left a Jewish family dead in the Williamsburg neighborhood of Brooklyn.

Julio Acevedo surrendered and was arraigned on fugitive charges Wednesday night. He was wanted in the death of Nachman and Raizy Glauber, whose car he struck while they were headed to the hospital to deliver their baby. The child initially survived the accident but died the following day.

The surrender, which occurred shortly after 5 p.m., was brokered by Acevedo’s friend, Derrick Hamilton.

Hamilton met NYPD officers at Grand Central  Station and traveled with them to Bethlehem. Acevedo was given a description of the unmarked police cars that would be waiting for him in the parking lot of the Turkey Hill minimart.

US Jewish groups reacted with praise and relief on Tuesday to the news that Secretary of State Rex Tillerson is...

“He walked up to the car and got in,” a witness told The Daily News. “No words or nothing.”

Community leaders in Williamsburg cheered the end of the interstate manhunt and demanded murder charges against Acevedo.

“We are going to ask that the prosecutor charges him with a triple homicide,” said local leader Isaac Abraham. “Nothing less than murder.”

Abraham, speaking outside the 90th Precinct stationhouse, said Brooklyn District Attorney Charles Hynes told him Acevedo would face manslaughter charges.

    CHARLIE HYNES’ JUNK JUSTICE MAY HAVE CONTRIBUTED TO THIS. THE KILLER OF MOSHE BERKOWITZ WHO WAS DRAG RACING WHILE DRUNK AND BLOWING RED LIGHTS ONLY GOT CONVICTED OF SECOND DEGREE MANSLAUGHTER WHICH CARRIES A SENTENCE OF 5-15 ONLY. THAT MEANS THAT HE WILL PROBABLY BE PAROLED AFTER SERVING ONLY ABOUT FIVE TO SEVEN YEARS THANKS TO THE NYS PAROLE BOARD. IF HE WAS CONVICTED OF AGGRAVATED VEHICULAR HOMICIDE HE COULD HAVE RECEIVED UP TO 25 YEARS BUT THANKS TO THE LIBERAL JURIES AND THE IRISH JUDGE WHO INFLUENCED THE LARGELY AFRICAN AMERICAN JURY TOWARD LENIENCY THEY REFUSED TO CONVICT HIM ON THE TOP COUNT. BUT CHARLIE HYNES COULD HAVE SOUGHT AN INDICTMENT FOR SECOND DEGREE MURDER ON THE THEORY OF DEPRAVED INDIFFERENCE LIKE THEY DID ON LONG ISLAND BUT THIS WAS NOT DONE. WHETHER IT WAS NOT DONE BECAUSE THE ON SCENE EVIDENCE OF DRUNKENNESS WAS SHAKY THANKS TO NY’S ‘FINEST’ OR SIMPLY BECAUSE HE DID NOT WANT TO DO IT REMAINS UNCERTAIN. BUT THE FACT IS, FIVE YEARS FOR MURDER IS NOT A SUFFICIENT DETERRENCT FOR KILLING A HUMAN BEING USING A VEHICLE AS A WEAPON. NOW IT HAS HAPPENED AGAIN AND THIS TIME IT IS TWO PEOPLE DEAD. WHAD’YA SAY NOW CHARLIE? EVER HEAR JACKIE MASON’S WASP ROUTINE? DRINK? DRINK?
