Tammy Meyers was the 44-year-old mother of four children who was gunned down in her driveway outside of Las Vegas in February 2015. She was on her way home after giving her teenage daughter driving lessons when a car sideswiped her car and threatened to kill her. When she pulled into her driveway, the “Road Rage” car passed and shot Tammy in the head. She died two days later in the hospital.
On March 4, 2016, 20-year-old Erich Nowsch pleaded guilty to second-degree murder with the use of a deadly weapon and assault with a deadly weapon in the case of Tammy Meyers. But on April 21, 2016, the day of his sentencing, Nowsch’s attorneys said their client wanted to withdraw his guilty plea. In court, they said a motion to withdraw was sent via mail but it didn’t make it to the court before the sentencing. Nowsch claimed “ineffective counsel” for the motion and his sentencing was postponed. ABC 20/20, which airs Fridays at 10pm, will reinvestigate the murder case on July 1.
