Second victim in last month's home invasion dies from her injuries

Las Vegas, NV (KTNV) -- The female victim who was shot during last month's home invasion has died from her injuries.

54-year-old Terri Ham of Las Vegas died at Sunrise Hospital on Thursday.

Natasha Jackson is facing numerous charges including murder, burglary and robbery in the case. Her accomplice, Cody Winters, died after being shot by police.

According to the police report, Jackson and Winters were stopped on the side of U.S. Highway 95 in a stolen vehicle on July 29.

A highway safety vehicle stopped to help, believing the couple to be in distress, but Winters pulled a gun on the driver. After loading some items in the emergency services vehicle, the suspects demanded to be driven to a new location.

The suspects told the employee to exit onto westbound Tropicana Avenue. They then told him to turn into an apartment complex. However, the NDOT employee was not able to make the turn so he turned onto Rollingwood Drive instead and pulled over.

Jackson and Winters unloaded their stuff and walked to 3930 Autumn Street. They knocked on the door and asked to use the phone. Once inside, Winters pulled a gun on a man in the house.

The resident and suspect fought for control of the gun, and Jackson told police she helped stab the resident’s wife with a screwdriver. Two children, who were in the house at the time, witnessed the fight.

Winters then gained control of the gun and shot and killed the resident, who has been identified as Richard Ramos.

The two suspects then went out the rear door and went over the wall into two yards on Almondwood Drive. They attempted to gain entry to one house but failed. Next, they busted into a vacant house.

By that time, the police had arrived and Jackson said she told Winters to shoot the officers. She then attempted to flee the house and was arrested.

Winters then entered the house next door and shot Ham. Winters then exited the home and was confronted by Las Vegas police. That is where he was shot and killed.
