A former hospital worker is accused of stealing a credit card after a patient died.

Kenisha Jones of Buffalo, 26, was working as a nurse's aide at St. Joseph Hospital in Cheektowaga and stole the credit card of an 88 year-old patient who died of natural causes. Jones is accused of using the card at a Sunoco on Delevan Avenue in Buffalo an hour-and-a-half later.

Lashawn Lewis also of Buffalo, 38, is accused of using the card a few hours later at FastTrack on Bailey Avenue in Buffalo, the Walmart on Sheridan Drive in Amherst where two large flat screen TVs were purchased, and at the 7-Eleven on Bailey Avenue in Buffalo.

Both pleaded not guilty. Jones was released and will appear back in court. Lewis remains in custody on $25,000 bail.
