WILKES-BARRE — The man accused of robbing a Wilkes-Barre taxi driver at gunpoint and then stealing the cab is headed to trial.

Sharndel Jackson tried to hide his face with court papers as he was led out of a preliminary hearing Tuesday afternoon.

The Burgit Taxi driver cried on the stand saying he thought Jackson was going to kill him during the hold up last month.

That cab driver said he quit his job over the fear of being robbed again.

Jackson remains locked up in Luzerne County prison.
