NYC: ‘About the worst case that you can ever hope to imagine’: Bronx man accused of hacking ex nearly to death with machete finally appears in court

A Bronx man accused of hacking his ex nearly to death with a machete finally faced a judge Tuesday in what even the suspect’s lawyer called “about the worst case that you can ever hope to imagine.”

Hector Delacruz spent a week in a local hospital undergoing a psychiatric evaluation after allegedly ambushing Lisbeth Acosta in the lobby of her apartment building weeks after she fled the New Jersey home they shared to relocate to the Bronx. Acosta was left with her face split open and clinging to life.

“This is about the worst case that you can ever hope to imagine,” Delacruz’s attorney, Cesar Gonzalez, told the Daily News.

“I can understand people not wanting to be together but for it to rise to this particular level, it’s beyond my comprehension.”
