CARSON, Calif. (AP) — A gang member who was 13 years old when a Carson woman was killed is scheduled to be released from a juvenile facility two years earlier than expected, angering the victim's family.

The Daily Breeze reported Tuesday that 22-year-old Doheen Pratt was given a discharge by a juvenile parole board and could be released as early as this week. Pratt was convicted of murdering 19-year-old Nicole Williamson who was killed in 2003.

Pratt received a nearly 10-year sentence in 2006, the maximum term possible for a 13-year-old. Had Pratt been 14 years old, he could have been tried as an adult.

Williamson's family has repeatedly attended parole hearings, urging state authorities to keep Pratt locked up. They say Pratt has never expressed remorse or apologized to them.

Another pile of waste who should be fried. Why do they keep releasing these losers?
