The man accused of shoving another man to his death in front of a New York City subway previously lived in Beaver County and was arrested several times there on drug and theft charges.

Naeem Davis, 30, who is currently homeless, was charged today with second degree murder in the death of Ki-Suck Han, 58, of Queens.

Online court records show that Mr. Davis moved from New Brighton, to Beaver Falls and then Industry. He was charged in connection with nine incidents between between January 2002 and January 2003.

His record includes convictions on charges of theft, manufacturing a controlled substance, possession of drug paraphernalia, assault and escape.

New York city police arrested Mr. Davis in Manhattan on Tuesday and charged him in connection with the subway pushing today.

Police received a call about 12:30 p.m. on Monday for a report that a man had pushed Mr. Han onto the tracks near West 49th Street and 7th Avenue, where he was struck by a southbound train.
