Three teens arrested in slaying of 81-year-old Bakersfield woman

Three teenagers have been arrested in connection with the slaying of an 81-year-old Bakersfield woman who had been found in her home last week mortally wounded.

Two of the suspects are sisters: Angelique Nash, 17, and Katila Nash, 15, the Kern County Sheriff's Department said. The third suspect, David Deshawn Moses, 17, was turned over to authorities by his family's pastor.

The three were booked on charges of murder, burglary and conspiracy, authorities said.

Dorothy Sessions was found in her home Wednesday by her grandson. Authorities said she had been beaten. She died later at a hospital.

Kern County authorities said the three teenagers had been seen roaming Sessions' neighborhood before she was slain. They were taken into custody Saturday and Sunday.

Hi my name is Christian I went to school with katila in 7 grade I was shooed when I heard about this. She was always a kid in trouble. And I believe she should be punished to the fullest extent

I went to school with katila in 7th grade and she was always in trouble at fruitvale jr high. I was shocked when I heard this story on the news it's ashame what they did to this poor women and I believe the three deserve the death penalty

Very sad indeed. These people are monsters.

Try them as adults without the possibility of parole for 40 years. No ifs, ands, or buts- lock them down and they deserve far more but God will be the judge of that.
Prayers to the family of Mrs. Sessions and Dorothy, may you rest in peace...

I know of people who said they were always in trouble and grew up in a rough life. that does not give them a right to murder a old women..she was old i dont understand why they would do this. the bakersfield paper said they attended to robb her but then ended up killing her... This is a shocker.
