More than three years after his wife was killed in a shooting incident that made international headlines, Bob Meyers is speaking out only to 13 Action News.
This as one of the men sentenced in connection with his wife's death, Derrick Andrews, was up for parole on Thursday.
"My wife was chased home," said Meyers, "she got out of a car and got shot in her head."
Decision will be released by the Board in 2-3 weeks. We will have to see but I would be surprised considering the severity of crime, aggravating factors v. mitigating factors, victim family statement, defendants risk of recidivism, etc. @KTNV#TammyMeyershttps://t.co/ybBnkMFVTY
The crime happened in February of 2015. Meyers, a mother of four, was shot and killed in front of her house near Cimarron and Alta. Two of her children witnessed the horrific scene.

The shooter, Erich Nowsch, has pleaded guilty. He is currently behind bars. However, Derrick Andrews, the getaway driver, is now eligible for parole.
On that night, Meyers was teaching her daughter how to drive when prosecutors say a series of misunderstandings lead to murder.
"She's gone, she's dead, she has no life," said Meyers, "my kids have no life because of this, they're all ruined because of this."

Tammy's emotional husband asked the Nevada Parole Board to ensure Andrews serves the maximum amount of time behind bars. Despite that, he says he feels compassion for Andrews' family.
The suspect's mother was also inside the hearing.
"I'd first like to begin with my apology once again," said Derrick Andrews via video conference.
EXCLUSIVE: It’s been many months since we have seen Derrick Andrews. In 2016, the then 28-year-old was sentenced to 5-15. Prosecutors said he was behind the wheel when Erich Nowsch opened fire, hitting Tammy in the head. @KTNV This was the SECOND shooting location that night. pic.twitter.com/uC3PbNbLWT
"I wish from the bottom of my heart I could trade places with her," said Andrews.

Andrews has served nearly four years. He was sentenced five to 15 years for manslaughter.
The Board will look at various factors in determining if he's eligible for parole. A decision will be rendered in the next three weeks.
EXPLAINER: How does NV Parole Board make its decision? Their biggest concern is public safety; however, their goal is also to successfully reintegrate offenders back into society. They try to be fair and just to all. @KTNV. Here’s moment suspect’s mom turns to vic’s husband. pic.twitter.com/Nch9vH1z7b
