BARTOW, Fla. (WTXL) — A Florida man has been charged with first-degree murder in the death of his girlfriend after he confessed to his mother and she called police.
Polk County Sheriff's officials said in a news release Monday that they arrested 37-year-old Jason Robinson outside his RV on Saturday night.
Authorities say Robinson grabbed a deputy's stun gun and radio and tried to choke him. Two witnesses jumped in and helped to detain him.
Deputies who arrived as backup found the girlfriend's body buried under a pallet next to the RV's door.
Robinson is being held in the Polk County Jail.
