Autumn Dawn Murry makes an appearance in Clark County District Court on Wednesday, March 30, 2011.

Authorities have arrested a second suspect in the March shooting death of a North Las Vegas cabdriver.

Metro Police said Felicia Mosley, 18, was arrested April 4 in Orlando, Fla., on charges of conspiracy to commit robbery and murder.

The charges come after cabdriver Tesfaye Arze, 30, was found dead on High Sierra Avenue near his taxi in the northeast valley.

Police released surveillance video from the cab showing two people who took a ride in the taxi before the shooting. A tip led to the March 11 arrest of Autumn Dawn Murry, 21.

When Murry was arrested, police said they wanted to talk to Mosley as a person of interest, and didn't name her as a suspect in the case. But investigators later secured arrest warrants for Mosley based on new information.

According to an arrest report, detectives learned that Mosley was living with her boyfriend, Saul Moran, in an apartment in the 3100 block of North Pecos Road. Police searched the apartment, which had been boarded up due to the eviction of Mosley and Moran, and found a citation with Mosley’s name and date of birth.

Police then contacted Moran at the North Las Vegas Detention Center on March 17. According to the arrest report for Mosley, Moran told police that Mosley was staying at the Barcelona Hotel, 5021 E. Craig Road, on the night of the murder. He met with her that night, he told police, and she told him about the shooting and the robbery of a Mini Mart.

Police have said they believe robbery was the motive in Arze’s shooting. An hour before the alleged robbery and murder of Arze, Murry is accused of robbing the Mini Mart at 4563 E. Russell Road shortly before 2:30 a.m. Police said Arze was shot that same morning about 3:30 a.m.

Murry remains in jail without bail after being indicted in the shooting by a grand jury on counts of burglary while in possession of a deadly weapon, carrying a concealed weapon, murder with use of a deadly weapon and two counts of robbery with use of a deadly weapon, according to the indictment filed last month in Clark County District Court.

  1. Autumn Murry was discharged from the Army at Ft. Polk in December under other than honorable conditions. In other words she was given the lowest type of administrative discharge allowed. The Army did not want to waste the time or expense to court-martial her for the many violations of the UCMJ she committed on active duty. At the very least she most likely had 2 non-judicial punishment actions taken against her for crimes supposedly not serious enough to warrant a trial by court martial. I have read soldier blogs and the people on there say she was always getting DUIs, assaulting co-workers and superiors and failing to be at work or at her post. I am sure the Army is relieved to have her gone. But unfortunately they released an evil, twisted animal with no concept of life or death out into society....could something have been done differently?

  2. I don't think it is the job of the Army to babysit everyone that they release for life.

    Going to be interesting on how the D.A. justifies not going for the Death Penalty on these two. Seems he has been finding a way out of using that on killers this last year.

    To much deal making and it is taking way to long to put to death those on Death Row.

    They have video, so they are going to claim not guilty at their hearing. The American way.

  3. Great, another hood rat we have to pay room and board for.
