LB)--An Enid woman was charged Tuesday with accessory to a felony in connection to the Sept. 11, 2019, home invasion that led to the death of an Enid woman. 37 year-old Lindsey Marie Nash who is already in custody of the county jail, was charged Tuesday with the felony, punishable by five to 45 years in prison. Enid News and Eagle reports Nash and her husband, Blaine Allen Coleman, were arrested last year in connection to the fatal home invasion and both later charged with child neglect. The charge against Nash accuses her of "actively concealing and/or aiding" the five people charged with the death Diana Baez, after the commission of a first-degree murder by assisting in the disposal of evidence and intimidating witnesses. The five people Nash is accused of aiding were bound over for trail last month on charges of first-degree murder and conspiracy in the death of Diana Baez following a preliminary hearing. Bond on the warrant for Nash's arrest on the accessory charge is set at $100,000. Nash already is being held in lieu of $25,000 bond on charges of unlawful possession of a controlled dangerous substance with intent to distribute and possession of drug paraphernalia and in lieu of $25,000 bond on a charge of child neglect.
