Second retrial scheduled for murder defendant


The second retrial of 19-year-old Angelique Nash on a charge of first-degree murder in connection with the beating death of an elderly woman is scheduled for March 11.

Juries have twice deadlocked in Nash's case.

Nash's sister, Katila Nash, was found guilty of murder and sentenced to 25 years to life in prison. And David Deshawn Moses, who struck 81-year-old Dorothy Session, was given life in prison with no possibility of parole.

Session was found badly beaten in her east Bakersfield home April 14, 2010.

Prosecutors have said the Nash sisters and Moses were looking for an empty home to burglarize and thought they had found one when they came upon Session's residence in the 1500 block of Camino Sierra. Prosecutors said they unexpectedly found Session home, and Moses beat her because they didn't want to leave a witness.
