Using kill traps for squirrels is always a last resort. In some cases it could be warranted. Very important, however, would be to eliminate the possibility they would return as adults. The one you turned loose would probably have close to zero chance of survival. Don't worry about it, it's just Nature.
I would leave the ares accessible for a few days to eliminate the possibility of more kits. Squirrels can have as many as 9 kits, although that would be unusual.
And two mommas would not den together. Perhaps in a large area, like an attic, if it were a mother and daughter, but I doubt it.
