Christian Walczyk, 21, was in court on Thursday to face charges in the death of Daniel Sino. He pleaded not guilty to charges of manslaughter, possession of a weapon and criminal impersonation.

According to the district attorney's office, Walczyk was driving southbound on the Taconic State Parkway in May, when Sino tried to pass his car. Walczyk blocked Sino from passing him, and the pair pulled off the road just before the Briarcliff Manor exit.

Authorities say that both drivers exited their cars and approached one another. Walczyk was allegedly holding a fake badge in one hand and a knife behind his back, and upon getting close enough to Sino, stabbed him twice in the chest.

Sino then returned to his car and was driven away by his wife, but ultimately died.

"It's terrible, it's disgusting, and it's just a sad thing that something lie this had to happen over words," said Joe Sino, Daniel's brother.

Walczyk is due back in court on Nov. 2.
