Woman indicted in deadly crime spree

LAS VEGAS -- A Clark County grand jury has indicted a woman in connection with a deadly crime spree in a neighborhood near Tropicana Avenue and Sandhill Road.

Natasha Jackson was indicted on several charges, including murder with a deadly weapon, attempted murder, first-degree kidnapping, robbery and burglary with a firearm for the series of crimes that happened the morning of July 29.

According to prosecutors, Jackson and her accomplice, Cody Winters, started their crime spree by kidnapping an employee of Emergency Services for Nevada Department of Transportation and making him drive them to a neighborhood.

Jackson and Winters forced their way into a home, shot and killed the homeowner, Richard Ramos, and stabbed his wife, who survived the attack, prosecutors said. The prosecutors also revealed that Jackson tried to pull Ramos' daughter from the place she had hid, during the crime spree.

The District Attorney's Office says the pair then broke into another nearby home, where they shot the homeowner's longtime girlfriend. She is still in critical condition.

Police were able to arrest Jackson. Officers shot and killed Winters.

The judge set the next court date for Aug. 18. Jackson was given no bail.
