LAS VEGAS (AP) — The family of a Las Vegas woman being sought for allegedly using a stolen car to run over and kill a nail salon owner is urging her to surrender.

In an interview that aired on ABC’s “Good Morning America” on Monday, the mother and grandmother of 21-year-old Krystal Whipple said she has to come out of hiding.

Sharon Whipple apologized to the victim’s family and hoped they could eventually forgive her daughter.

The killing occurred Dec. 29 outside Crystal Nails & Spa in Las Vegas. Krystal Whipple’s credit card was rejected when she used it to pay for a $35 manicure. She told the employee she would go get cash from her car — but they then saw her get in the vehicle and pull out.

The salon owner and her boyfriend ran to the parking lot and tried to block Whipple. Annie Ngoc Nguyen, 51, was run over and dragged as she stepped in front of the car. Sonny Chung, Nguyen’s boyfriend of 13 years, clung to the back of the car until he fell off.

The car, which was a rental, was later found abandoned at a nearby apartment complex.
