Nowsch and Andrews enter guilty pleas in Tammy Meyers case

News

Erich Nowsch and Derrick Andrews entered guilty pleas for the shooting death of Tammy Meyers before the court Friday.

Nowsch, 20, entered a guilty plea for second-degree murder with a deadly weapon, attempted murder with a deadly weapon and discharging a firearm from a vehicle.

Nowsch, is accused of shooting Meyers, 44, to death in front of her home in Feb. 2015.  Metro Police said Andrews drove the getaway car.

Andrews, 27, entered a guilty plea to one count of voluntary manslaughter and one count of accessory to commit murder.  He faces 2-15 years and a possible fine of more than $10,000.

Nowsch faces a sentence of life in prison with the possibility of parole after serving a minimum of 11-18 years.  He will be sentenced on April 21.

No word on when Andrews will be sentenced.  In court before the judge, Nowsch and Andrews also had to verbally admit that they were responsible for the death of the northwest valley wife and mother.

The pleas avoid trial in a case initially cast as a road-rage shooting before it was revealed that Nowsch lived in the neighborhood and knew the Meyers family.

Both men were initially charged with murder with a deadly weapon, attempted murder with a deadly weapon and discharging a firearm from a vehicle. They were also originally offered a plea deal in Sept. 2015, but they rejected that deal.
