Carey L. Coleman, 22, of Camden, was arrested for the June 16th shooting death of 47-year-old Larry Hamilton of Trenton.
The Burlington County Prosecutor's Office said that surveillance cameras captured Coleman getting into Hamilton's cab around 1:00 a.m. at the Trenton train station.
A short time later, police were called to the intersection of Route 130 North and York Street after the cab crashed into a utility police.
Hamilton was found dead inside the vehicle from a gunshot wound to the head.
Coleman was arrested at a relative's house on Monday.
Police say the gun used to kill Hamilton was found at the home of Coleman's girlfriend.
Coleman is charged with one count of first-degree murder and being held on $500,000 bail.
Hamilton was a father of grown children and had worked for Yellow Cab for more than a decade.
