COCOA BEACH, Flor. -- America's youngest convicted murderers will be getting out of prison this week, according to ABC News.
Curtis Jones was just 12, now 29, and his sister Catherine 13, now 30, when they admitted to murdering their father's girlfriend, Nicole Speights, in 1999.
The siblings were both given an 18-year sentence.
According to the siblings, a male relative was sexually abusing them. When they asked their father and his girlfriend for help, they were ignored. That's when they plotted to kill all three: the male relative, their father, his girlfriend.
After they killed Speights, they got scared and decided against killing the other two.
While in jail, Curtis became an ordained minister and Catherine married a pen pal.
"Of course there are fears, mainly because there's so much I must learn to function like a normal person: how to drive, fill out job applications, text, dress for a job interview, build my credit," Catherine wrote in a letter to Florida Today in 2014.
Curtis is scheduled to be released from prison on July 28, and Catherine on August 1.
They'll spend the rest of their lives on probation.
