New York City police said they arrested the suspected driver Julio Acevedo at a mini-mart in Bethlehem, Pa.

Acevedo is accused of speeding down a Brooklyn street in a BMW at 60 miles per hour early Sunday when he collided with a car carrying Nachman and Raizy Glauber, both 21. They died Sunday, and their premature son died Monday.

Acevedo, 44, was arrested last month on a charge of driving while under the influence, and that case is pending.

He served about a decade in prison in the 1990s for manslaughter.

No one answered the door at Acevedo’s last known address, in a public housing complex in Brooklyn.
