LATEST: The husband of Tammy Meyers says that he will be in court on Friday when Erich Nowsch and Derek Andrews enter new pleas in the case.

Bob Meyers told 13 Action News in a phone interview the family is relieved that they will not be called upon to testify.

We also spoke to District Attorney Steven Wolfson. He told 13 Action News that he believes that Nowsch and Andrews are accepting a plea bargain, but won't know for sure until they actually walk into court.

The murder of the Las Vegas mother has captured the attention of the nation and was even the focus of an episode of "20/20."

Many rumours about what really happened and the relationship between the alleged killer and the victim have swirled since then.

Bob Meyers is hoping that whatever happens on Friday in court will bring an end to the case without the pain of a criminal trial and believes his wife will finally be at peace.


Erich Nowsch and Derek Andrews are expected to enter a new plea in the case of the shooting of Tammy Meyers on Friday.

Nowsch is accused of shooting Meyers during a confrontation outside of her home on Feb. 12, 2015. Andrews allegedly drove the getaway car. Meyers' son, Brandon Meyers, was also involved in the incident.

Nowsch reportedly fired two dozen shots. One of the bullets hit Meyers in the head. She died a couple of days later. Brandon Meyers was not injured.

The shooting was originally reported as the result of road rage that began with Meyers given her daughter a driving lesson. But, the story has changed several times since then.

Nowsch confessed to the killing after he was arrested a week after the shooting. However, he later said that he was high at the time.

Both Nowsch and Andrews previously pled not guilty to charges of murder, attempted murder, conspiracy to commit murder and gun charges. They have been held at the Clark County Detention Center since their arrests last year.

The trial has been delayed several times and the lawyer for Nowsch said in September that a deal was not in his client's best interest.
