NEWARK - Authorities in Essex County have made a second arrest in connection to the death of a Newark taxicab driver.

Alchane Mayes, 18, of Newark, who also lists an address in Henryville, Pa., was arrested by detectives from the Essex County Prosecutor's Office Homicide/Major Crimes Task Force yesterday.

Jeshon Johnson, 19, of Newark, was arrested by the U.S. Marshals Service on July 11.

Both men were both charged with robbery, felony murder, conspiracy and weapons offenses in connection to the death of 49-year-old Rochenel Guerrier.

Just after 5 a.m. last Saturday, police received a report of a car crash involving Guerrier's taxicab and several parked cars. When they arrived on the scene they discovered Guerrier had sustained a gunshot wound. He was pronounced dead at the scene.
