Cab driver: Slayings suspect, girlfriend had fight

From NBC12 News

RICHMOND, Va. (AP) - A cab driver who drove an aspiring rapper suspected of killing four people to the airport says he talked about fighting with his girlfriend over a text message from another man.      

Richard "Sam" McCroskey of Castro Valley, Calif., was arrested at the airport the next day.

He was charged with killing his girlfriend's father, Presbyterian minister Mark Niederbrock.      

Authorities expect to charge McCroskey with killing his girlfriend, 16-year-old Emma Niederbrock; her mother, Longwood University professor Debra Kelley; and Emma's friend, 18-year-old Melanie Wells of Inwood, W.Va.      

They were found bludgeoned to death Sept. 18 in Kelley's Farmville home.      

Driver Curtis Gibson says McCroskey told him he fought with his girlfriend because he read the text message.
