PHILADELPHIA (WPVI) — A 14-year-old girl turned herself in to police late Wednesday morning in connection with a fatal attack on a 73-year-old man in Philadelphia last month.

The teenager has not been identified, but her attorney told Action News she faces murder and conspiracy charges as an adult.

Richard Jones, 14, turned himself in to police with his attorney on Monday. Jones is charged with murder and criminal conspiracy in connection with the attack.

A 13-year-old girl and a 10-year-old also spoke to police but are not charged.

The 14-year-old girl, Jones and others were allegedly involved in the June 24 attack on the 2100 block of Cecil B. Moore Avenue in North Philadelphia.

Surveillance video released by police on Friday shows the suspects attacking the victim with a traffic cone.

According to police, Lambert suffered head injuries and later died.
