Suspects Plead Guilty in 'Road Rage' Killing of Las Vegas Mom Tammy Meyers



    Erich Milton Nowsch Jr., right, and Derrick Andrews appear in court Tuesday, March 31, 2015, in Las Vegas. The two have been charged with the Feb. 12, 2014, fatal shooting of Tammy Meyers, 44, in a Las Vegas neighborhood cul-de-sac.

    Two men pleaded guilty to killing Tammy Meyers, a Las Vegas other of four, NBC News reported.

    The incident initially appeared to be a random road rage incident. Meyers was shot in the head in front of her home last Feb. 12, 2015, and died two days later.

    Meyers and her 15-year-old daughter encountered a driver of a silver car earlier that day. Angered by the driver, Meyers and her armed son went looking for him, found a similar-looking car, and followed it, prosecutors said. The people in that car — Erich Nowsch, 20, and Derrick Andrews, 27 — then exchanged gunfire with Meyers' son out on the road and again in front of their home, police said.

    On Friday, Nowsch pleaded guilty to charges including second-degree murder with a deadly weapon, while Andrews, who is accused of driving the getaway car, pleaded guilty to one count of voluntary manslaughter and one count of accessory to commit murder. Both previously pleaded not guilty.
