Bakersfield teen, Angelique Nash, found guilty of murdering an elderly woman to be sentenced Friday

Teen was convicted in July

BAKERSFIELD, Calif. - A Bakersfield teenage girl who was found guilty of murdering an elderly woman was sentenced to 25 years to life Friday.

After two hung juries, a third jury returned a guilty verdict against Angelique Nash in the death of Dorothy Session.

Two previous juries were deadlocked 10-2 and 11-1 for finding Nash guilty.

Nash was found guilty of first-degree murder and a special circumstance of committing the murder during the course of a burglary, according to District Attorney Lisa Green.

Prosecutors said Angelique Nash acted as a lookout in 2010 while her sister, Katila Nash, and David Moses broke into Sessions' home and beat her to death. 

Moses was sentenced to life in prison without parole and Katila was sentenced to 25 years to life in prison.

During the sentencing, Nash wrote a letter to the judge requesting a new attorney in the case.  All were asked to step outside the courtroom while the issue addressed.

A judge sentenced Nash today to 25-years to life without the possibility of parole.
