Couple accused of robbery extradited to Las Vegas

Two people accused of a fatal robbery in Las Vegas who turned into FBI agents in Florida have been extradited to Clark County, prison and court records show.

Christine Schultz, 22, and Michael Overton, 31, were incarcerated Saturday at the Clark County Detention Center, where they were being held for multiple crimes including murder, kidnapping and robbery.

They were due to appear in court in Las Vegas on Monday morning.

Shortly after Las Vegas police and the FBI announced a $20,000 reward for information leading to their capture, the couple turned themselves in to authorities in Jacksonville, the federal agency said.

Schultz and Overton are two of four people suspected of the March 25 murder of Natalie Manduley at her South West Valley home near South Torrey Pines Drive and West Robindale Road in what the Metropolitan Police Department has described as “very brazen residential theft”.

Manduley drew her own pistol during the robbery and was hit by gunfire from one of the suspects during a shootout, police said.

Schultz, who knew Manduley, 24, showed up at her home and then invited three accomplices to rob the property, police say.

Police believe the home, which was ransacked by the thieves, was targeted because Manduley’s boyfriend was known to keep expensive jewelry, Metro Lt. Ray Spencer said.

Manduley’s boyfriend was arriving in the neighborhood when he saw 18-year-old Kamari Oliver crash into a car in his driveway and drive away, police said.

Police allege Oliver “freaked out and ran away from the resident”, leaving the other three suspects behind.

A car chase ensued and the victim’s boyfriend rammed the suspects’ car, causing it to crash into a wall, police said.

The getaway driver shot the man and then ran away, police said. Oliver, who is charged with similar crimes, was arrested days after police found a backpack in the wrecked car carrying high school assignments bearing his name, police said.

Attorney Dan Winder told the Las Vegas Review-Journal that the teenager did not enter the victim’s home or participate in the robbery, and speculated that his client was “caught in something he didn’t know was going to happen.

Police had not identified either the fourth suspect or the alleged shooter.
