DANVILLE, VA – A 47-year-old Martinsville man was arrested for killing his cab driver in Danville on Sunday.
The Danville Police Department believes the suspect got a ride in a cab and at some point during the fare, cut or stabbed the driver.
Investigators say they found the driver, 51-year-old Wendy Harris, dead in the 500 block of Gay Street.
Harris was from Danville and had no known connection to the suspect.
Police say the suspect left the area before they arrived, but investigators developed James Edward Fultz IV as the suspect, tracked him to a location on Temple Avenue and arrested him after a short foot chase.
Fultz was charged with first-degree murder in connection to Harris’ death.
He is being held in Danville City Jail without bond.
Police also charged Fultz with the robbery of Carter’s Quick Shoppe on West Main Street that happened on December 27, 2020.
These cases remain active investigations.
