In a surrender brokered by friend Derrick Hamilton, Acevedo, 44, met police in a convenience store parking lot near Bethlehem wearing a blue hooded sweatshirt, trying to hide his face from cameras. Hamilton – who met police at Grand Central Terminal and drove with them to Pennsylvania – will not face charges.

Acevedo said nothing as he was arrested on charges of leaving the scene of an accident and was ordered held without bail overnight in a Bethlehem jail. He later told Judge Wayne Maura of the Lehigh District court that he had finished the 11th grade, was unemployed and lived in Brooklyn.

Leaders in the couple’s Orthodox Jewish community are calling for Acevedo to face murder charges.

Acevedo – who has a long rap sheet which includes a conviction for manslaughter, drug and robbery charges – was arrested last month on charges of driving under the influence.
