New date in knife case against man held in Vegas mom slaying

LAS VEGAS (AP) - A judge has pushed back a court date to May 19 for a defendant trying to withdraw his guilty pleas to assault with a weapon in one case, and shooting and killing a Las Vegas mom a neighborhood cul-de-sac in another case.

Erich Milton Nowsch Jr. first will have a hearing May 10 that could lead to his sentencing for second-degree murder stemming from the February 2015 shooting death of Tammy Meyers.

A judge in that case might also grant a delay and appoint Nowsch a new lawyer.

Nowsch faces a minimum of at least 11 years in prison in the Meyers slaying.

He's facing one-to-six years in the knife case.

Getaway driver Derrick Andrews faces two years for his guilty pleas to voluntary manslaughter and accessory to murder.
