(Las Vegas, NV) Judge Stefany Miley sentenced Autumn Dawn Murry to prison for her part in killing a cab driver in March of 2011.
Autumn Dawn Murry pleaded guilty to second-degree murder and robbery with use of a deadly weapon for the slaying of Las Vegan Tesfaye Arze, 30. In doing so she avoided three other felonies. Murray is sentenced to 16-67 years in prison.
Arze was found with a gunshot wound to his head early March 4, 2011, on High Sierra Avenue, near Mount Hood Street and Carey Avenue.
Prior to the slaying, Murry also robbed a Mini-Mart in the 4500 on Russell Road, near Mountain Vista Street. Murry and another woman, Felicia Mosley also robbed Arze of $224 and took $500 from the store. Mosley pled guilty to robbery and will be sentenced at a later date.
The Professional Drivers Association is a group that helps cab drivers and their families who are killed or injured during a criminal act. Greg Bambic is the president and told KXNT how they determine the dollar amount that a family can receive.
“We make a determination within our guidelines on what we can give the families. We gave the Arze family $5,000,” says Bambic.
The PDA also gave the family of fallen cab driver Michael Bolden the same amount. Bolden was killed during the triple homicide on the Strip in February.
Bambic also worked with Arze during the time of his murder.
“At that time I was a cab driver trainer and he was a great, nice young man,” says Bambic.
