LAS VEGAS (AP) — The second man arrested in the fatal shooting of a Las Vegas mother in a residential cul-de-sac is due for his first court appearance, alongside his 19-year-old co-defendant.
Derrick Andrews is due to get a lawyer Thursday at his arraignment following his arrest last week in the Feb. 12 shooting that killed 44-year-old Tammy Meyers.
Prosecutors allege that Erich Milton Nowsch Jr. fired the fatal shots from a vehicle with Andrews at the wheel in what police initially suspected was a road rage incident.
Days later, investigators revealed that Meyers enlisted her adult son and his gun to confront a driver who threatened her and her daughter after a driving lesson in a school parking lot.
Andrews and Nowsch each face murder, attempted murder, weapon and conspiracy charges.
