16 year old Aazis Richardson
Aazis Richardson was charged with murder Friday night, hours after police said he shot 47-year-old Vincent Darbenzio twice in the head. The cab driver’s body was found in his vehicle shortly before 5 a.m. near the entrance to a Scranton housing complex.
“Richardson said he got upset because the cab driver was taking the long way and ripping him off,” police wrote in a criminal complaint posted online by The Times-Tribune of Scranton. The complaint said Richardson told investigators the driver kept taking a longer route even after being told shortcuts.
Richardson told police he became angry and shot Darbenzio after telling him to pull over, according to the complaint.
UPDATE I: Teen arrested in Scranton cabbie’s murder has a criminal and gang related past … go figure.
16 years old and already implicated and being investigated in 4 murders. Just lock this kid up for the rest of his life or introduce him to old ” Sparky” and do society a favor.
Mr. Darbenzio picked Mr. Richardson up on Washburn Street about 3 a.m. and Mr. Richardson told detectives he asked to be let out near Valley View Terrace. It was there Mr. Richardson shot Mr. Darbenzio and stole $500 from his pockets before walking away.
He told police he threw the money in the woods near his 1011 Washburn St. home, but police have not found it.
“All homicides have a certain level of coldness,” Chief Carl Graziano said at a news conference after the accused murderer was arraigned. “But this particular defendant exceeds all measurable levels of coldness.”
Police located Mr. Richardson after tracing his address from the phone number used to call for the cab.
Mr. Richardson claims he bought the 9mm handgun for $175 in Newark, N.J., where he said he is a member of the Boyton Boys set of the Bloods gang. Police found the weapon after the defendant continued to glance at a bag where he had stashed it in the attic.
He also claims to be a suspect in a triple homicide in Newark but had been released from jail. District Attorney Andy Jarbola said his office was investigating.
