The price of a life?

Apparently $19.

To end one life and ruin your own?

A young man charged late Friday night with capital murder shot a taxi driver in the head to rob him of $19, police said.

Witnesses told police Derrick Wayne Hunt Jr., 18, called for a cab using a phony name early Monday morning just before the fatal shooting with the intent of getting a ride without paying the fare.

Police said they believe that after picking up Hunt, Yellow Cab driver John Dexter, 49, stopped at an Exxon station at the 5000 block of North Foster Road to make a small purchase, leaving Hunt inside the van.
