The Times Tribune reports that when Aazis Richardson, 16, was asked why he kιlled the cabbie, he had a ready explanation.
“That’s what I do to people that don’t listen,” he said.
Richardson was charged with mυrder and robbery after Vincent Darbenzio, 47, was found deαd in the driver’s seat of his cab.
While appearing before Judge Joanne Corbett, Richardson wasted no time admitting that he’d gunned down Mr. Darbenzio because the cabbie was “taking the long way and rιpping him off.”
Richardson was arrested with bloοd stains on his paints not long after Darbenzio had picked up the teen at around 3am. Once Richardson decided he didn’t like the route Darbenzio was taking, he shοt the cabbie in the back of the head and stole $500. He told police that he dumped the money in the woods but police weren’t able to locate it.
“All hοmicides have a certain level of coldness,” Chief Carl Graziano said at a news conference after the Friday arraignment. “But this particular defendant exceeds all measurable levels of coldness.”
Investigators found Richardson by tracing the phone number used to call the cab.
When the cab was found, the victim was partially hanging out of the door. Richardson used a 9mm in the kιlling, one he claims to have purchased for $175. The 16 year old also claims to be a member of the Boyton Boys set of the Blοods gang.
