Julio Acevedo pleaded not guilty Thursday to charges related to the fatal hit-and-run car accident that killed a Williamsburg couple.

Acevedo, 44, was arraigned in Brooklyn Supreme Court on felony charges including second-degree manslaughter, criminally negligent homicide and leaving the scene of an accident without reporting.

The charges stem from a March 3 car accident on Kent Avenue in Williamsburg in which a car Acevedo was driving slammed into a livery cab carrying 21-year-olds Nathan Glauber and his wife, Raizy, who was seven months pregnant. The Glaubers’ baby boy was delivered prematurely but died a day later.

Acevedo was arrested in Pennsylvania, where he fled before turning himself in to police.
