PHILADELPHIA -- A third suspect has been accused of stealing a watch from a man who died while waiting for care at a Philadelphia emergency room.

Police announced Monday that 21-year-old Jannira Walker of Philadelphia has been charged with criminal conspiracy, robbery and other offenses.

Police have already charged two men in the crime against 63-year-old Joaquin (wah-KEEN') Rivera, a respected musician and school counselor.

Rivera sought treatment for chest pain at Aria Health's Frankford Campus on Nov. 28. The trio is accused of stealing his watch after he passed out in the waiting room. He soon died.

Police say Walker was arrested Saturday. Her attorney did not immediately return a message left Monday.
