A second suspect in a November 2012 Las Vegas slaying over a drug deal gone bad is in custody.

Dawnyell Flynn, 32, Las Vegas, was arrested in Los Angeles and extradited Wednesday to Las Vegas. She is jailed in the Clark County Detention Center and awaiting an appearance in Las Vegas Justice Court.

Flynn is charged with murder and conspiracy to commit murder in the Nov. 1, 2012, shooting death of Patrick Lowe during a drug deal at an apartment in the 3800 block of Palos Verdes Street.

A Metro Police affidavit laid out what investigators found:

Several witnesses told police Lowe had gone to the apartment where Flynn and Lawrence N. Fuller were selling rock cocaine. Lowe paid $10 but was unhappy with the amount of rock cocaine he was given. Outside the apartment, he became vocal with Flynn and threatened to call police.

Flynn went inside the apartment and told Fuller to shoot Lowe. Fuller, armed with a gun, left and shot Lowe in an alley as Lowe tried to run.

Fuller returned to the apartment, leaving Lowe outside, face down and crying for help. At that point, Flynn took the gun, left the apartment, went up to Lowe and shot him once in the back of the head.

Both Flynn and Fuller left the apartment before police arrived.

Fuller was arrested Nov. 25 and remains jailed without bail.

Flynn, also being detained without bail, is due in court at 7:30 a.m. Friday.
