She did not fire the shot that killed Lai, but under Ohio law accomplices can be handed the same punishment as killers. After spending more than two decades behind bars, Patterson was finally allowed to walk free on Monday when she hugged family members and shouted: ‘Let’s eat and open gifts!’

She had been out with her 15-year-old sister Michelle and a group of teenage girls who had been burgling garages on the night of September 20, 1994. They were sitting in a car in an alleyway when they were confronted by a another group of teens – including Patterson. The two groups got into a heated argument that ended with Michelle being shot in the head. Another woman, LaShawna Keeney, is accused of firing the fatal shot.
