SHREVEPORT, LA (KSLA) -

A Caddo Parish Grand Jury Wednesday returned an indictment for a man accused in the July slaying of a Shreveport cab driver.

Reginald Williams is now facing a charge of first degree murder for the death of Carlos Jenkins. Police said Williams, a passenger in Jenkins' Yellow Checker Cab, shot the 38-year-old driver in the head on July 5 near the 700 block of Central Street.

This charge is an upgrade as Williams had been held in custody at CCC on a second degree murder charge.

At the time, officers found the cab had plowed into an apartment in building 19 of the Woodlawn Terrace complex. An investigation revealed that Jenkins had a male passenger in the back of the Yellow Checker cab when it crashed. That man was seen running from the wrecked taxi just after the crash.

Williams was found near the scene after he collapsed from a severely broken leg, which police believe he sustained during the wreck.

Police also found a handgun inside a Dumpster near where Williams collapsed, which they thought may have been used in the crime.

His bond was most recently listed at $300,000.
