Man charged with murder in Jackson shooting

JACKSON, Miss. (AP) - Jackson police say a 39-year-old man has been charged with murder in the shooting death of another man.

 William Liddell, who is from Canton but lives in Jackson, faces a murder charge in the death of 23-year-old Dion Phillips of Jackson.

Police spokeswoman Colendula Green says witnesses told police that Phillips was in a home with Liddell when the two began to argue Saturday. As Phillips left, police say the suspect allegedly shot him in the back.
