A man confessed to shooting his supervisor to death at a bus stop so she couldn’t report him for stealing money from the child advocacy organization where they worked, investigators said Monday.

The victim, 56-year-old Kim Jones, suspected Randolph Sanders was stealing from Turning Points for Children, and Sanders was worried he might lose his job, homicide Capt. James Clark said. Fearing Jones would report him, Sanders stalked her for more than an hour before shooting her in the back of the head at a bus stop Jan. 13, Clark said.

In the days after the shooting, police released surveillance video that shows the killer, dressed in black and carrying a duffel bag, walking up to Jones as she leaned against a wall waiting for the bus. Investigators pieced together the killer’s movements from surveillance video in the area, Clark said.

Sanders worked under Jones, a mother of two, as assistant director of the child advocacy organization, CEO Mike Vogel said.

Sanders confessed to investigators Sunday, Clark said. He was arraigned early Monday on murder and firearms charges and ordered held without bail pending a Feb. 18 preliminary hearing.

Sanders, 36, of Philadelphia, couldn’t be reached for comment. Online court records didn’t list information on his lawyer.
