A third person has been charged in connection with the murder of a Chester woman who was found handcuffed in Fairmount Park, Philadelphia Police announced Friday.
Keith Bullock, 32, of Chester, was arrested on Wednesday for his alleged involvement in the death of 26-year-old Toy Charda Bryant.
Authorities charged Bullock with conspiracy to commit murder, kidnapping and unlawful restraint.
Bryant had been handcuffed, stabbed multiple times and shot in the back of the head. Her body was found on June 14 near the Mann Center for the Performing Arts.
