(NEW YORK) -- The New York man accused of going on a 28-hour stabbing spree that killed four people and left four others badly injured was back in a Brooklyn courtroom Monday to be assigned a new attorney.
On Sunday, Maksim Gelman, 23, was arraigned on charges of murder and assault for the fatal stabbing of four people and the assault of four others. When being led from the police precinct to the courthouse, Gelman showed no remorse, saying that he had been "set up."
Gelman began his bloody rampage Friday morning after arguing with his mother over his use of her Lexus. When his stepfather, Aleksandr Kuznetsov, intervened in the argument, Gelman allegedly stabbed him to death in his family's Brooklyn apartment, police said.
Gelman then went to the home of a female acquaintance, Yelena Bulchenko, where he stabbed her mother to death, police said. He allegedly hid in the home, waiting for Bulchenko to return to find her mother's dead body. When Bulchenko called 911, he chased her out of her home, stabbing her 11 times, police said.
Gelman's spree continued. He rear-ended a car and then slashed the chest of the driver three times, police said. Gelman took the man's car and ran over a pedestrian, 62-year-old pedestrian Stephen Tanenbaum, police said. Tenenbaum died from his injuries.
In the early hours of Saturday morning, Gelman allegedly stabbed a livery cab driver and attacked a couple driving a Nissan. He stabbed the driver in his hands, hijacking the car, police said.
Gelman boarded a downtown bound subway train when a woman recognized him and alerted authorities. He had crack cocaine with him at the time of his arrest, police said.
"What's so horrendous and bizarre, we have no reason that we can give you as to why he did this," New York Police Commissioner Ray Kelly said at a press conference over the weekend.
