A 74-year-old woman was released from prison late Monday night after her conviction in a 1981 murder was set aside and her sentence was reduced, according to KTLA.com.

Family and friends greeted Mary Virginia Jones with hugs and flowers as she walked out of Century Regional Detention Facility in Lynwood shortly before midnight.

“Words cannot express my gratitude to God and to my fellow man,” Jones said after being released.
