Investigators say a teenager stabbed and killed a Livery cab driver last month to avoid an 8-dollar fare. Police accuse 16-year-old Dequan Duncan of stabbing Geraldo Gutierrez so he didn't have to pay the cab fare for a ride across town.

Gutierrez tried driving to for help, but ended up crashing into a pole.

He bled to death behind the wheel of his cab.

Detectives say Duncan confessed to the stabbing, but claims he only wanted to injure the Gutierrez, and never meant to kill him.
