Man charged with murder in stabbing of taxi driver
By Unnati GANDHI, With a report from Jennifer LEWINGTON, Wednesday, September 7, 2005, Page A14
A 42-year-old Richmond Hill taxi driver was stabbed to death during an apparent robbery very early yesterday in Don Mills, an area residents call quiet and safe.
About 3: 40 a.m., a man living in the apartment unit next to where the taxicab was parked was awakened by two short blasts of a horn.
"There was a whole lot of commotion and I woke up and my thought was, 'People are moving out this early?' Because the door is open and there's people going in and out. I didn't realize they were police officers," said the 44-year-old salesman who resides at the Don Mills Road and Lawrence Avenue apartment building. He did not want to be identified.
From his bedroom window, he could see the taxi driver's head leaning in the driver's seat.
"I was groggy and sleepy. I looked out and saw a guy sitting with his head tilted toward the passenger side. I think, you know, he's taking a snooze waiting for his fare. I didn't think too much of it."
An hour later, about 4: 45 a.m., police took two young men into custody from inside the building before releasing them a few hours later.
Toronto Police Constable Kristine BACHARACH said the two men were no longer considered suspects.
Police then arrested an 18-year-old man and charged him with second-degree murder. Constable BACHARACH said officers aren't looking for more suspects.
She added that police will be going through the digital video footage captured from inside the cab for any other clues.
Morteza KHORASSANI was taken to Sunnybrook and Women's College Health Sciences Centre where he was pronounced dead. He is the city's 51st homicide of the year.
The resident described the area as typically quiet. "The sixth floor is all elderly citizens," he said. "This used to be a safe neighbourhood. But people are already thinking of moving. It only takes one [incident] to convince a lot of people to move."
Another resident, who lives on the fourth floor, said he is thinking of moving out in the next month or so.
"I can't be bothered with it. I've learned from past experience not to mingle in other people's affairs," said the 53-year-old man who also did not want to be identified.
"There was a lot of noise all summer long. Not so much arguments, a little bit of swearing."
The man said he moved to the area five years ago because he had heard good things about it.
"It is fairly safe. It's just something that happened out of the blue. It's one of the safest areas that I've been around in Toronto."
A taxi driver who was in the area yesterday said he couldn't believe what had happened.
"We have to work 12 hours a day, seven days a week, and we are hardly paying our bills. No vacation, nothing. And then things like this happen. It's very sad," said Hamid, who would give only his first name.
"I work 84 hours a week. I should be a millionaire by now, but I can't even pay my bills."
As he left a meeting of the Toronto Police Services Board, Mayor David Miller said: "I am very concerned about the safety of our taxi drivers. It is a very dangerous job and it is very difficult in the middle of the night. The initiatives that have been taken, especially the cameras, are quite effective. Obviously, the circumstances of this one [incident] will be reviewed and there is anything more that can be learned we'll learn from it."
Shane SMITH of Toronto has been charged with second-degree murder and is scheduled to appear in court today.

Night of horror
Friends were unable to prevent the fight between buddies that left one of them dead on the street in a pool of blood with his girlfriend weeping over his body.
By Jennifer O'BRIEN, Free Press Reporter
A 20-year-old London father is dead, one of his best Friends is accused of killing him and his heartbroken girlfriend and Friends are left wondering why it happened. James BLAIR, the guy "who always had a smile," died Wednesday night after he was stabbed in the stomach in front of a northwest London apartment building.
Eighteen-year-old Mwangi GETHIGA -- known as Kuggy to his Friends was charged yesterday with second-degree murder.
BLAIR and GETHIGA had a fist fight in the apartment at 75 Oakville Ave. that is across the hall from where BLAIR's girlfriend, Sonyda KHOUN, lives with their son, Latteral, Friends said yesterday.
"He was the nicest kid, man. He always had a smile on his face," said Sok PHUM, 26, one of many Friends who gathered outside the building yesterday.
"He always brought you up. That's the way he was."
Still stunned by what they'd seen the night before, Friends were struggling to make sense of what had happened to "one of the coolest kids around."
"We were all sitting around the apartment like always," said Jon COLEBY, 19, one of three roommates who live in the apartment where the fight broke out. "We are all really good Friends. They (BLAIR and GETHIGA) hung out every day."
As he spoke, COLEBY occasionally put a hand up to the bridge of his nose, where a purple bruise reminded him of the fight he'd tried desperately to stop the night before.
A crowd of Friends, including BLAIR, GETHIGA and COLEBY, were drinking beer and planning to take out turntables later to do some freestyle rapping, COLEBY said.
BLAIR was a gifted freestyler, he said. "And when he got drunk, he loved to freestyle."
But that night the skinny, fun-loving dad with the dreadlocks never got the chance.
BLAIR became drunk and obnoxious, said Jessica ROBERTS, 18, who lives with COLEBY and another roommate in the apartment.
"He just started being rowdy and annoying," she said.
Some of the Friends told BLAIR to leave, and he did. But about 10 minutes later, he came back into the ground-floor unit.
GETHIGA then told BLAIR to "get out, that he wasn't wanted in there at the time," COLEBY said.
BLAIR took issue with that and the two Friends started pushing, then punching each other, while others tried to break it up, COLEBY said.
BLAIR left the apartment. But when he was outside, he shouted a racial slur to GETHIGA, he said.
"(GETHIGA) just went in the kitchen and grabbed a knife," COLEBY said. "We all started fighting with him, trying to get him to drop the knife, but he was fighting and punching, he punched me in the face... and we couldn't get it."
GETHIGA made his way out.
By the time COLEBY got outside, BLAIR was down in front of the building, lying in a pool of blood only metres away from his baby boy, his girlfriend and his Friends.
"There was all this blood and his face was so pale," COLEBY shuddered. "He was gurgling."
It was chaos.
BLAIR's girlfriend, Khoun, raced outside. At one point, she held her baby's father in her arms, screaming and crying.
She also called 911, while Friends tried cardio-pulmonary resuscitation.
"She was hysterical," said COLEBY. She was holding BLAIR on the ground, crying out 'Who did this?'
At a friend's house later yesterday afternoon, the devastated young mother could hardly speak.
Holding her 23-month-old in her arms, tears rolled down her cheeks.
Then Khoun asked for a pen and paper to write something to her boyfriend of four years.
"We miss your smile, goofiness and loud mouth," she wrote. "Latteral and I will always love you deep within our hearts... We didn't lose anything. We gained an angel," she wrote.
BLAIR was born and raised in London, went to Sir Wilfrid Laurier secondary school and was taking adult education when he died, his Friends said.
"We're all Friends. We all grew up together," said Ken PHOMSAMOUT. "He had this great big smile."
