Homeless man charged in NY subway rider’s death

NEW YORK (AP) — A homeless man charged in the death of a man pushed in front of an oncoming subway train has several prior arrests, but mostly on minor charges.

Naeem Davis, 30, was arraigned Wednesday night on a second-degree murder charge and ordered held without bail in the death of 58-year-old Ki-Suck Han.

Han’s death on Monday got widespread attention not only for its horrific nature, but because he was photographed a split-second before the train trapped him and seemingly no one attempted to come to his aid.

Han’s daughter, 20-year-old Ashley, said Wednesday that her father was always willing to help someone. But when asked about why no one helped him up, she said: “What’s done is done.”

Davis has been arrested before in New York and Pennsylvania.
