Man held in slaying of Tammy Meyers has trial set for knife case

Las Vegas, NV (KTNV) -- A Clark County judge has set a trial for January on child abuse charges for the man accused of killing Tammy Meyers.

19-year-old Eric Nowsch is accused of shooting Meyers Feb. 12 during a gun battle after an initial confrontation with Meyers and her daughter. Three days later, he allegedly threatened a 13-year-old boy with a knife during a street confrontation.

He was indicted in April on child abuse and battery charges and pleaded not guilty. His trial is scheduled to begin Jan. 19 with a status hearing scheduled for Sept. 22.

A trial date has not been set yet for the murder case. Nowsch has a hearing on those charges June 26.

26-year-old Derrick Andrews is the suspected getaway driver in the alleged murder. He is scheduled to have a hearing Thursday.

Both men have pleaded not guilty to charges of murder, attempted murder, conspiracy to commit murder and discharge of a weapon from a structure or vehicle. They are currently being held at the Clark County Detention Center.
