MEMPHIS, Tenn. — A man told police he was involved in the death of a man in Frayser, and took money and a weapon off the victim, according to court information.

Robert Phillips, 22, was taken into custody and charged with first-degree murder in perpetration of a robbery and especially aggravated robbery.

The victim, identified by police as Labron Woods Jr., was found shot to death inside a Mazda CX-5 on Portland Avenue near North Watkins on Monday, after police were called to a suspicious vehicle.
