The stepbrother of the Bucks County murder suspect who jumped in front of a SEPTA train Monday has been charged with the murder, police said Tuesday.
Nathan Hand, 25, of Corning, N.Y., was charged with second-degree murder for his role in the murder of Daniel Bennett, said officers in the Schuyler County Sheriff’s Department and the New York State Police.
Hand is the stepbrother of Thomas W. Borden, 33, of Worthington Drive in Warminster, who was wanted in connection with Bennett’s murder in Dix, N.Y., on Friday. Borden led police on a chase through Montgomery County that ended near the Jenkintown train station.
Borden was running from police when he “purposely” jumped in front of a northbound train on the West Trenton Regional Rail Line about 10 a. m., Abington Township police said. He was pronounced dead at Abington Memorial Hospital shortly after being hit.
