THE BRONX - Years after two men were acquitted of charges in the death of a 2-year-old boy, a new indictment with a different suspect was opened in court today.

Darryl Hemphill, 35, was brought back to New York this week after being accused of killing David Pacheco with a stray bullet on Easter Sunday in 2006. Hemphill currently lives in North Carolina with his wife and two children.

Prosecutors and NYPD Commissioner Ray Kelly say that a blue sweater containing Hemphill’s DNA connects him to the shooting.

Hemphill pleaded not guilty today at the Bronx Hall of Justice. He is expected back in court next month.
