Police looking for 3rd suspect in Phoenix pastor's killing

PHOENIX (AP) - Authorities have identified a third suspect in the fatal shooting of a Phoenix pastor earlier this year.

Phoenix police say they're looking for 35-year-old Nichole "Nikki" Coble in connection with the homicide case.

Two other suspects already are in custody in the Feb. 27 murder of John Moriarty, also known as "Pastor Jack."

The 53-year-old Moriarty was a pastor at the Redeemed Outreach Center, which is 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.

No information is immediately available about Coble's suspected role in the pastor's murder, but police say they have reason to arrest her for homicide.

Police are offering a reward up to $1,000 for information about Coble's whereabouts or involvement.
