2nd man, Sheedley Pierre, arrested in murder of Orange cabdriver Jonas Larose

A second person was arrested and charged in connection with the murder of a livery cabdriver in Orange last week.



Sheedley Pierre, 20, was charged with felony murder, robbery and conspiracy, according to the Essex County Prosecutor's office.



Authorities say that Pierre and a 16-year-old tried to rob the driver, Jonas Larose, and shot him on Nov. 30. Larose crashed the cab shortly after he was shot.



Pierre is being held at the Essex County Correctional Facility. His bail was set at $500,000.



The name of the 16-year-old has not been released due to the suspect's age.
