ST. LOUIS (KMOX) – An 18-year-old has been charged in the September shooting death of a cab driver
in the Central West End.

The St. Louis Circuit Attorney’s office has charged Shakur Ellis with second-degree murder, robbery and two counts of armed criminal action.

A judge has issued a $250,000 cash-only bond.

The body of Timothy Grice, 38, was found in his cab in the 4900 block of Laclede at 10 o’clock in the morning after someone reported the vehicle had been sitting there for sometime.

Grice had been shot in the head and was pronounced dead at the scene.

Third man sentenced in 2016 murder of cab driver in the Central West End
11/8/18



ST. LOUIS • The last of three defendants charged in connection with the fatal shooting of a cabdriver during a robbery in the Central West End was sentenced Thursday to prison.

Shakur Ellis, 20, was sentenced to 10 years in prison for second-degree murder, first-degree robbery and armed criminal action by St. Louis Circuit Judge David Dowd. The judge accepted a plea deal in August between the state and defense in the Sept. 14, 2016, shooting death of cab driver Timothy Grice.

A co-defendant, Jerry Reese, shot and killed Grice, 38, in his cab between 2 and 3 a.m. in the 4900 block of Laclede Avenue near Forest Park, according to court documents. His body was discovered in the taxi seven or eight hours later when someone reported to police that the vehicle had been parked there for a long time.

Prosecutors said Ellis cooperated with homicide detectives and agreed to testify against Reese, who was sentenced by Dowd on Wednesday to 25 years in prison. Reese, 21, pleaded guilty to five felonies, including second-degree murder and first-degree robbery.

Reese admitted pulling up behind Grice's taxi, approaching the car and shooting the taxi driver in the neck before taking an iPhone and other items.

In May, the judge gave Savion Smith, 24, a 15-year prison term after a jury found him guilty of receiving stolen property in a related crime.
