PHOENIX -- Phoenix police have arrested a woman on charges related to the robbery of her neighbor and the shooting death of her alleged conspirator.

Police said in April, Gabriela Carballada conspired with Christopher J. Winston to rob Adam Parrish inside his apartment near Cave Creek and Cactus roads.

Police said Winston pistol-whipped Parrish with a gun he had brought to the apartment, but Parrish took the weapon away and fatally shot Winston, 22.

Police spokesman Officer James Holmes said Carballada, 21, ran from the scene while Winston was assaulting Parrish.

Carballada was arrested Friday and faces first-degree murder and armed robbery charges.

Police said drugs may have played a role in the homicide.

Parrish has not been charged in the shooting.
