PITTSBURGH – Shocking video was shown in court earlier this week of the moments leading to the death of an Uber driver.
During a hearing this week for Calvin Crew, the man accused of shooting and killing Christina Spicuzza earlier this year, dashcam video of the Uber ride showed Crew holding a gun to Spicuzza’s head, WPXI reported.

Spicuzza is heard in the video pleading for her life as she drove Crew around for an hour with the gun pressed on her neck at times. At one point, he can be seen holding the gun to the base of Spicuzza’s skull and holding her ponytail. Police also said Crew tried to access Spicuzza’s banking accounts.
Spicuzza, who was a mother of four, was found dead on a hillside near a park in Monroeville, Pennsylvania, outside of Pittsburgh, WPXI reported in February.
She had been shot once in the head.
Days after her body was found, police arrested Crew, charging him with criminal homicide, robbery and tampering with evidence.
Investigators said they used cellphones, license plate readers and traffic cameras to trace the movements of Spicuzza, her car and Crew. Police also found Spicuzza’s dashcam, which had been missing from the vehicle when it was found.
Police said Crew took the camera, but the authorities were eventually able to recover it. WPXI reported that Spicuzza’s fiancée had bought her the camera to protect her.
