It’s been revealed that the mother KNEW the pot-obsessed suspect now arrested for her murder – and he lived a block away.

Daily Mail – A suspected gang-member was given money, fed and consoled by the mother-of-four he allegedly shot dead following an act of road rage in Las Vegas last week, her husband has claimed.

In a bizarre twist it has been revealed Erich Nowsch, 19, who was apprehended during a tense standoff with police on Thursday, actually knew victim Tammy Meyers, 44, and her family, lived a block away and may even have attended the same school as her son Brandon.

Her husband Robert, who claims police told him to keep his family’s relationship with the suspect a secret, described how his wife had consoled Nowsch, would tell him to pull his pants up around the neighborhood and tried to teach him how to be a man.

The 49-year-old, who called Nowsch an ‘animal’ when his house was surrounded by law enforcement, said they knew he was a bad kid, but ‘not this bad’.

The revelation comes just seven days after Mrs Meyers was shot in the head as she made her way home with her 15-year-old daughter, who she was teaching to drive.

Since then an extraordinary set of events have unraveled which have turned what initially seemed like a cold-blooded road-rage murder, to an act of self-defense to a feud between acquaintances.
