PHOENIX (AP) - A third suspect in the fatal shooting of a Phoenix pastor in February is in custody.

Phoenix police announced Tuesday that 35-year-old Nichole “Nikki” Coble was arrested in connection with the Feb. 27 shooting death of John Moriarty, also known as “Pastor Jack.”

Police didn’t immediately release any information about Coble’s arrest or her connection to the case.

The two other suspects already are in custody. Police say one man was arrested in March and the other in April. Both men are being held on suspicion of murder, burglary, armed robbery and other charges.

The 53-year-old Moriarty was a pastor at the Redeemed Outreach Center, known for helping former inmates and the homeless in downtown Phoenix.

Witnesses say the suspects broke into the pastor’s home, demanded money and shot him.
