Parole denied for getaway driver in Tammy Meyers murder case

Parole has been denied for the getaway driver in the Tammy Meyers murder case.

According to the Nevada Board of Parole Commissioners, Derrick Andrews was denied parole until March 2020 after a parole hearing earlier this month

The crime happened in February of 2015. Meyers, a mother of four, was shot and killed in front of her house near Cimarron Road and Alta Drive.

On that night, Meyers was teaching her daughter how to drive when prosecutors say a series of misunderstandings lead to murder.

Her family is satisfied with the parole decision. 

Meyers' husband, Bob, asked the Nevada parole baord to ensure Andrews spends the maximum amount of time behind bars. Despite that, Meyers said he feels compassion for Andrews' family. 

Andrews has served nearly four years. He was sentenced five to 15 years for manslaughter. 

The shooter, Erich Nowsch, has pleaded guilty. He is currently behind bars.
