LAS VEGAS (AP) - A Nevada judge says he’ll decide just three days before trial whether to suppress statements from a 19-year-old accused of shooting a Las Vegas mother to death.

Erich Milton Nowsch Jr. and 27-year-old co-defendant Derrick Andrews made a brief appearance in court Friday while the Aug. 7 hearing date was set.

Trial is scheduled Aug. 10.

Nowsch and Andrews have pleaded not guilty to murder, attempted murder, weapon and conspiracy charges in the February slaying of 44-year-old Tammy Meyers in a cul-de-sac several miles west of downtown Las Vegas.

Police say Nowsch shot at a vehicle with Tammy Meyers and her adult son inside a few blocks from the Meyers home, before firing another 24 shots at them in the cul-de-sac.

The son, Brandon Meyers, fired back and wasn’t wounded.
