Additional charge filed for suspects in fatal pizza delivery

EAST STROUDSBURG, Pa. - The three individuals who police say took part in the shooting of a pizza delivery driver now face charges of criminal homicide. 

Israel Berrios, 17, his girlfriend Carolina Carmona, 30, and her brother Salvador Roberts, 21, were arraigned Wednesday and now await their preliminary hearing Jan. 9, in which they face over 13 initial charges. Some of those charges in addition to criminal homicide include robbery, aggravated assault and harassment, according to court documents.

The incident took place Dec. 11 around 1:30 a.m. when officials say a fake delivery order was called in to Domino's. The victim -- Richard Labar -- arrived near the ROTC building on East Stroudsburg University's campus to deliver the pizza and was ambushed, shot and robbed. 

Labar was ruled in critical condition and died a day later from his injuries, according to the Lehigh County Coroner's office. Labar was shot in the eye with a sawed-off shotgun, officials say.
