A 20-year-old who admitted shooting and killing a Las Vegas mom has pleaded guilty to assault with a weapon in a separate case alleging he held a knife to the throat of a 13-year-old boy.
Erich Milton Nowsch Jr.'s plea on Thursday in Clark County District Court was the second part of a plea deal.
He pleaded guilty last Friday to a reduced charge of second-degree murder with a weapon in the February 2015 shooting death of Tammy Meyers.
Getaway driver Derrick Andrews pleaded guilty to voluntary manslaughter and accessory to murder.
Nowsch will face a minimum of between 11 and 18 years, and up to life in prison, at sentencing April 21 in the murder case.
He'll face one-to-six years on the knife case at sentencing April 28.
