PHILADELPHIA (KYW Newsradio) — Authorities have charged a contractor with the murder of a man found burning in the trunk of a Jeep in South Philadelphia last week. 

Officials say 39-year-old Luis Cruz shot 43-year-old Joslyn Morgan, and stabbed him in the neck, after arguing over the quality of a roofing job and payment.

Police say Cruz confessed to pieces of the crime.

He is due in court in February.
