Officials say surveillance cameras at the Trenton Transit Center showed 22-year-old Carey Coleman Jr., get into Larry Hamilton’s cab at about 1 a.m. on June 16.

Soon after that, police in Burlington City learned that the cab had crashed into a utility pole there. The 47-year-old Hamilton’s body was inside, but the passenger was gone.

Authorities later determined the driver died after being shot in the head, and say the handgun used in the crime was found in the home of Coleman’s girlfriend.

Coleman was arrested Monday night and bail was set at $500,000.

It was not immediately clear whether he had a lawyer.
