HEMPSTEAD - A man accused of murder along the Long Island Rail Road tracks faced a judge today.

Authorities say 34-year-old Neihem Levy got into a fight with a 49-year-old man at the Bellmore Train Station early Saturday morning. Levy allegedly punched the victim in the face, causing him to fall onto the tracks. Prosecutors say the fight continued on the tracks, and Levy stole the man's wallet. The unidentified victim died.

Levy's mother, Annette Stroud, who volunteers at the Harvest of the World, says her son has problems.

"My son had a drinking problem, and he had a temper," Stroud says. "I always told him about his temper, when he was drinking, he had a mental problem."

Levy is charged with second-degree murder and robbery. He was arraigned at First District Court in Hempstead, remanded without bail and put on suicide watch.
