A 19-year-old man has been indicted on murder and other charges in the shooting death of a mother of four in a neighborhood gunbattle.
The indictment filed Friday accuses defendant Erich Milton Nowsch Jr. of murder, attempted murder and firing a weapon from a vehicle. The charges could bring the death penalty if he is convicted.
The shooting was initially characterized as road rage but was later found to involve more complex relationships.
The indictment doesn't name a getaway driver in the Feb. 12 killing of 44-year-old Tammy Meyers.
Robert Meyers says the victim, 44-year-old victim Tammy Meyers, took their daughter home after a late-night driving lesson and fetched her 22-year-old son with his gun to find a driver who frightened her earlier.
Police say the son fired several shots at Nowsch during the fatal shootout in a cul-de-sac outside the Meyers home.
