Teen girls charged with murder

READ MORE:

HICKORY, NC (AP)-- Two 16-year-old girls have been charged with murder and other charges for their roles in a North Carolina taxi driver's slaying.

The Hickory Daily Record reports the girls join three men between 18 and 22 years old charged in the
death of cabdriver Adam Williams in Hickory last summer. Emily Starnes of Hickory and Consandra Tyree of Newton were arrested Saturday and charged with murder and robbery. They're being held in the Catawba County jail.

Tyree's stepmother, Kelly Tyree, declined comment Sunday. A message left at Starnes' home was not returned.

Williams was stabbed shortly after he arrived to pick up passengers at a Hickory restaurant. He had driven for Yellow Cab Company for just two months and had about $40 in fares at the time of his death.
