Last month, Katila Nash's sentencing was continued for her role in the murder of 81-year-old Dorothy Session back in 2010.  As Judge Gary Friedman sentenced Nash to 25-years-to life in prison she showed no emotion. But she was visibly crying as Session's daughter spoke and a slide show played about her mother's life.

"It's hard for me to say whether it was actual remorse in the six weeks of trial all I saw was a lot of laughing joking with co-defendants none of the three took trial that seriously," says prosecutor David Wilson. 

In September, a jury found Nash and David Moses guilty of first degree murder. Moses has already been sentenced to life in prison without the possibility of parole. The judge declared a mistrial for Katila Nash's sister, Angelique. Her re-trial is scheduled to begin next week.
