Teen girls charged in cab driver murder
Two 16-year-old girls face murder and other charges in relation to the 2011 death of a Hickory cab driver.
Emily Starnes, of Hickory, and Consandra Tyree, of Newton, were arrested Saturday and charged with murder and robbery.
The girls join three men between 18 and 22 years old charged in the death of cabdriver Adam Williams in Hickory last summer.
Starnes and Tyree are in the Catawba County jail.
Williams was stabbed shortly after he arrived to pick up passengers at a Hickory restaurant. At the time of his death, he had about $40 in fares and had driven for Yellow Cab Company for only two months.
