Kareem Alleyne, 35, was charged Monday with homicide by vehicle and manslaughter after police said he intentionally struck Officer Marc Brady's bicycle with his car.
Alleyne, of Mount Airy, had just left his girlfriend's house around 11:40 p.m. Sunday when he saw Brady riding on Musgrave Street near Meehan Avenue in the direction of the woman's home, said Philadelphia Capt. James Clark. Brady and the woman, who was not identified, have several children together, and police said Brady sometimes visited the children at her home. But he and Alleyne "had bad blood between them," Clark said.
When Alleyne saw Brady biking toward him, Clark said, he swerved his white Acura in Brady's direction and struck him head-on. Brady, 32, who lived a few blocks from the scene, was pronounced dead at Albert Einstein Medical Center shortly after midnight.
Sources familiar with the investigation said Alleyne told police he struck Brady by accident. He drove a short distance after the crash, Clark said, then stopped his car and waited for police to arrive.
