WASHINGTON (AP) - D.C. police say two teenagers who were dating are accused of killing a taxi driver so they could rob him of money.

Court records accuse Joshua T. Mebane, of Waldorf, and Linda Bury, of Parkton, in the killing of Quadar Muhammad.

Police say the couple entered Muhammad's cab last Wednesday at the Greyhound bus terminal and asked to be driven to a school. Police say once they arrived, Mebane shot Muhammad in the head.

The car was later found on fire, with Muhammad's body inside. A witness reported to police that Bury had talked about having killed a cab driver with her boyfriend.

They've been ordered held in the D.C. jail. Bury's lawyer didn't immediately return a phone message seeking comment Tuesday. A lawyer for Mebane couldn't immediately be reached.
