UPDATE: Two arrested in killing of little Laylah Washington

Two men have been arrested for the murder of two-year-old Laylah Washington. A tip to CrimeStoppers helped break the case, police said.

Tylan McCray 21, and Brandon McCray, 19, were arrested December 21. The older McCray is charged with First Degree Murder and other counts. The younger McCray is charged with Accessory to Murder.
The arrests end nearly 18 months of intense investigation by the Memphis Police Department’s Homicide Bureau.

Laylah was shot in an apparent road rage incident on June 11, 2017 while riding in her mother’s car on Kirby Parkway near Castle Creek. She died of her injuries two days later.  The victim’s photo:
