Police: 24-year-old man charged with murder after tax cab video links him to victim in killing


CHARLESTON, South Carolina — Authorities say they have charged a man with murder after finding video that shows the suspect and victim getting into the same taxi.

Police said in a statement Wednesday that 24-year-old Tyshawn Robinson is in jail after his arrest.

Investigators say Robinson got into a cab on Sept. 19 with 51-year-old George Whetsell, then the men got out of the cab not far from where Whetsell was found dead from a head injury on Oct. 1.

Police didn't give a motive for the killing or say how the men may have known each other.

It wasn't known if Robinson had a lawyer.
