NEW YORK -- Julio Acevedo, the driver of car in an accident that killed a young hasidic couple in Brooklyn, was charged with manslaughter.

Brooklyn prosecutors announced a second-degree manslaughter charge against Acevedo, 44, on Tuesday. If convicted, he faces life imprisonment. Acevedo earlier had been indicted on charges of leaving the scene of a fatal accident.

Prosecutors say Acevedo was speeding through the streets of Williamsburg, Brooklyn, at nearly 70 miles per hour when the BMW he was driving plowed into a livery cab that was transporting Nachman and Raizy Glauber, both 21, to the hospital early on March 3.
