Man charged in connection with shooting death of Houston cab driver

HOUSTON - Less than two months after being released from prison, a man has been arrested and charged in connection with the shooting death of a Houston cab driver last week.

Donalvon Rhyne was killed Thursday while he was sitting in his cab in front of the Camden apartments on Brompton near Holcombe in southwest Houston. Detectives say the slaying was triggered by robbery. Police say two suspects started robbing Rhyne and then one of the attackers pulled out a gun and shot the victim, known to many as "Von."

Police and family members pleaded to the public Monday during an announcement for an increased reward of up to $10,000 for information in the case.

Court documents reveal that Jock Quinn Wilson is now charged with capital murder in the case. Wilson is being held without bond in the Harris County Jail.

Wilson, 28, was arrested Tuesday at around 5 p.m. by the Gulf Coast Violent Offenders Task Force in the 6900 block of Lozier on Houston's south side.

Houston police tell Local 2 that more arrests in the case are expected.

Wilson, of Hempstead, was released from prison on Dec. 31, 2013, upon completion of a 7-year sentence for an aggravated robbery conviction.

Rhyne was a family man, a father and husband. He had worked for United Cab for more than 10 years and before that he was in the Air Force.

"We lost a really good man. I'm sorry. He loved his job, he was good at it, he loved his family and was good at it, he loved his family and was good at being a dad," said Pamela Rhyne, the victim's wife.

Houston police say their investigation isn't over and more arrests in the case are expected soon.
