Obazuaye had picked up James and Taylor in the 8500 block of South Parnell about 5:45 p.m. March 14, 2013, authorities said.

When the men entered the cab they demanded the driver’s possessions, police said. After traveling about a mile, at least one of the men opened fire near South Lafayette Avenue and West 91st Street.

Obazuaye was shot twice, and the men ran off with his cell phone, authorities said.

Obazuaye, of South Holland, died four days later, authorities said.

Taylor is being held without bond, while James is being held on $2 million bond.
