Three Charged With Murder Of Man Trying To Sell Car On Craigslist
(Memphis) A 21-year-old and two 17-year-olds have been charged with first-degree murder in perpetration of a robbery.
Brandon Vance, 21, Martiness Henderson, 17, and Walter Collins, 17, are accused of killing 37-year-old Larry Wilkins and then stealing his 2006 Ford Mustang just before midnight March 9, 2014.
The shooting happened at the Sycamore Lake Apartments on Sycamore View.
Police say Wilkins met the suspects after they expressed interest in buying his car, which had been listed for sale on Craigslist.
It was not immediately clear why the meeting took place just before midnight.
The car was found in the Frayser area around 10:30 Monday morning.
Police say it is always best to meet in a public, well-lit area to do any kind of sale.
