The felony complaint says Nadell, who lives in Florida, and relative Andrea Benson, from Washington, D.C., traveled to Nadell's Spring Valley home on Jan. 25. The pair allegedly lured the 80-year-old to open the door  and then beat and stabbed her.

Police say Eltia Grant, of California, and Tanisha Joyner, also of Washington, D.C., helped cover up the murder and were paid to provide Diana Nadell with an alibi.
