Timesha Wilson, 22, allegedly confessed to police she was at 79-year-old Janiel Hooten Bernard's home when she was killed, but did not physically commit the crime.
The suspect was not in court early this morning when the charges were read because officials said Wilson is on suicide watch.

Susberry, the son of Bernard's former housekeeper, was arrested and charged in Bernard's murder on Tuesday.
Together, police said Susberry and Wilson rode a METRO bus on the afternoon of July 2 to Bernard's home. Cameras from various parts of town captured the pair's movements on the day of the murder.
