LAS VEGAS (AP) -- Police have arrested a man suspected of being the getaway driver in a shooting in a Las Vegas cul-de-sac that killed a mother of four and led to the arrest of a 19-year-old neighbor.
Officer Larry Hadfield says 26-year-old Derrick Andrews was taken into custody Friday, a little more than an hour after his name was made public in the death of 44-year-old Tammy Meyers.
An indictment filed about noon charges Andrews and Erich Milton Nowsch Jr. with murder, attempted murder, conspiracy and firing a weapon from a vehicle charges.
Prosecutor David Stanton says Andrews and Nowsch tried to erase their cellphone records to prevent police from linking them to the Feb. 12 shooting.
Clark County District Attorney Steve Wolfson has said prosecutors may seek the death penalty.
