Witnesses told police Melvin felt his wife, Anitra Summerville, 42, had "set him up to get attacked."
Summerville also told Memphis police he lost his phone during a fight and had been using his girlfriend's phone.
GPS data showed that the victim's vehicle was parked in the 3500 block of Crow road on March 31, a few hours after the fight happened.
More GPS data showed that the girlfriend's phone and the phone Summerville lost were also there at the same time.
That's where the victim's car and containing the bullet-riddled body was repossessed by All Star Recovery and taken to the Mississippi car lot.
