A gang member charged in the 2010 killing of a Phoenix man who was bound, beaten and stuffed in the trunk of his car has been sentenced to natural life in prison. Maricopa County prosecutors say 23-year-old Robertson T. Brown was sentenced Friday for first-degree murder in a plea agreement. Phoenix police say a teenage girl lured 22-year-old David Estrada to a west Phoenix park before two other suspects jumped him in a robbery attempt on June 7, 2010. Estrada's abandoned vehicle was towed two days later and his body was discovered in the trunk of the vehicle the following day. Brown and two juveniles were later arrested on suspicion of first-degree murder, robbery, kidnapping and auto theft. Police say all three are documented members of the south-central Phoenix gang.
