Teens Found Guilty in Cabbie Murder

BUFFALO, NY-- A jury has found two teens guilty of murdering a Buffalo cab driver.

Sean Austin,16, and Maurice Howie, 17, were found guilty of robbing and murdering of Mazen Abdallah.

He was found shot to death in his cab last March.

During opening statements, prosecutor Christopher Belling said it was Austin's cell phone that was used to call the cab. It is the same phone allegedly used to call for food deliveries. In some cases, the delivery drivers were robbed and shown a weapon. Belling told jurors, "this case is all about bad calls."

Two other teens are charged only with robbery and are scheduled to stand trial in April.
