BAKERSFIELD, Calif. — Angelique Nash, 27, convicted of murder for her part in the death of 81-year-old Dorothy Session, was granted a motion for release.

Nash was convicted along with her sister, Katila Nash, who was granted release from the California Department of Corrections and Rehabilitation in Dec. 2019.

Back in April of 2010, Katila, and another juvenile, David Deshawn Moses broke into Session's home. Moses then beat Session to death. Angelique was the lookout.

At the time of the murder, Angelique was 17 years old and Katila was 15. Moses was 17 years old.

Katila was released after a new law, SB 1391, passed stating that someone 15 or younger could not be tried as an adult.
