Guilty of fatal casino carjack

Posted: April 27, 2012

MAYS LANDING, N.J. - A jury convicted an Atlantic City man Thursday of murder and other charges in the fatal carjacking of a customer from a casino parking garage in 2010.

Craig Arno was found guilty of murdering Martin Caballero, 47, of North Bergen, N.J., after he and his ex-girlfriend Jessica Kisby cornered the victim in the parking garage of the Trump Taj Mahal in May 2010. He was cleared of one attempted-murder charge.

Kisby pleaded guilty in February to murder and agreed to testify against Arno in return for becoming eligible for parole in 30 years.

Kisby testified that the pair took Caballero to a rural area about 20 minutes away where they stabbed him to death, stole his ATM card then used it to withdraw money. Arno could get life without parole.

Prosecutors told jurors that Arno and Kisby were "evil pinballs" and that the pair spotted a gleaming white Lincoln SUV driven by Caballero, followed it into the parking garage of the Trump Taj Mahal Casino Resort, where they carjacked him.
