PHILADELPHIA (TCD) -- A 14-year-old girl reportedly turned herself in to authorities this week for her alleged involvement in the beating death of a 73-year-old man last month.
According to NBC Philadelphia, a 13-year-old girl and the 14-year-old both surrendered to Philadelphia Police on Wednesday, July 13, but the 13-year-old was later released. The 14-year-old, however, was charged with third-degree murder in the death of 73-year-old James Lambert. He was reportedly beaten several times with a traffic cone.
Earlier in the week, a 14-year-old boy and his 10-year-old brother also surrendered to Philadelphia Police for their alleged participation in the same incident. NBC Philadelphia reports the 14-year-old has been charged with murder, but the 10-year-old was released.
According to Philadelphia Police, four juvenile males and three juvenile females allegedly attacked Lambert on Friday, June 24, at 2:38 a.m. on the 2100 block of Cecil B. Moore Avenue. The suspects allegedly "struck the victim several times with objects, knocking the victim to the ground causing injuries to his head."
Lambert was reportedly transported to a nearby hospital, where he died from his wounds the following day.
