Police Pin Pa. Charity Official's Murder on Theft Suspicion

Philadelphia police have arrested an employee at a youth nonprofit on charges of murdering a co-worker who planned to report his alleged theft of tens of thousands of dollars from the charity, The Philadelphia Inquirer reports. Police said Randolph Sanders, 36, ambushed and shot Kim Jones, the director of after-school outreach program Families and Schools Together, on Jan. 13 as she waited at a bus stop en route to work.

Ms. Jones, 56, was to meet that day with officials from the Pennsylvania Department of Human Services about her suspicion that Mr. Sanders had misappropriated $40,000 from the program, according to investigators. Mr. Sanders had worked for two years for Turning Points for Children, the state-funded nonprofit that operates Families and Schools Together. He was arrested on murder charges Sunday, and police are also investigating the alleged theft.
