If it was the timing chain it would still turn over but very fast because there'd be no compression. Sounds like you have 2 problems going on. A starter problem and possibly a tune up is needed. Get it to crank first then run a compression test. If all cylinders test low, it's jumped timing. HTH. -Jim
