BAKERSFIELD, Calif. (AP) - A Kern County Superior Court judge has sentenced a teen to 25 years to life in prison for the beating and killing of a grandmother during a robbery.
The Bakersfield Californian reports that Judge Gary Friedman on Tuesday ordered Katila Nash to serve the maximum sentence because of what the judge termed "the gravity of the offense and the callousness of the defendant's participation."
Nash was 15 at the time of the April 2010 murder. Prosecutors say she and two others went through an unlocked back door to get into 81-year-old Dorothy Sessions' home.
Twenty-two-year-old David Deshawn Moses, who prosecutors say also took part in the attack, was sentenced last month to life without the possibility of parole.
In September, Nash and Moses were found guilty of first-degree murder.
A mistrial was declared for a third defendant, Angelique Nash, but a retrial is scheduled for Nov. 19.
