Woman charged in Vegas manicurist’s death waives extradition
PHOENIX (AP) — A woman accused of using a car to fatally run over a salon worker in Las Vegas after skipping out on a $35 manicure has waived her extradition from Arizona to Nevada.
Court records show 21-year-old Krystal Whipple waived her extradition on Saturday.
She was arrested last week in Glendale, a suburb of Phoenix.
A warrant was issued in Nevada against Whipple on murder and robbery charges in the Dec. 29 killing of 51-year-old Ngoc Q. Nguyen of Garden Grove, California.
Police say Whipple tried to pay with a fraudulent credit card and told Nguyen that she was going to her car to get cash before killing her as she drove away.
Investigators say the car was a rental that had been stolen.
