Pair accused in fatal robbery extradited to Las Vegas

Updated June 6, 2022 - 6:50 pm

Two people accused in a fatal Las Vegas robbery, and who turned themselves into FBI agents in Florida, were extradited to Clark County, jail and court records show.

Christine Schultz, 22, and Michael Overton, 31, were booked Saturday into the Clark County Detention Center, where they were being held on multiple felonies, including murder, kidnapping and robbery.

They were due in Las Vegas Justice Court Monday morning.

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

Schultz and Overton are two of four people suspected in the killing of Natalie Manduley on March 25 in her southwest valley home, near South Torrey Pines Drive and West Robindale Road, in what the Metropolitan Police Department described as a “very brazen residential robbery.”

Manduley, 24, her boyfriend, and another unidentified woman, had recently met Schultz, who they knew as “Nani,” at a strip club, where she worked, according to an arrest report.

The night before the killing, Schultz had dinner with the trio at their home, police said. And Manduley’s boyfriend, who was not identified, told police he saw Schultz return to the home the next day.

The unidentified woman said that a man dragged her upstairs at gunpoint, threw her in a closet and kept asking “what’s in the safe,” police wrote in the report.

She said that Schultz pointed a gun at her before gunfire broke out in another room, police said.

Manduley pulled out her own gun during the robbery, and was struck by the gunfire from one of the suspects during a shootout, police said.

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

Manduley’s boyfriend was pulling into the neighborhood when he saw Kamari Oliver, 18, run into a car in his driveway and take off, police said.

The car was registered to Overton, police said.

Police allege Oliver had “panicked and fled the resident,” leaving the other three suspects behind.

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

The getaway driver shot at the man and then took off running, police said. Oliver, who is charged with similar felonies, was arrested days after police found a backpack in the wrecked car that carried high school homework with his name on it, police said.

Attorney Dan Winder told the Las Vegas Review-Journal that the teenager had not gone into the victim’s house or participated in the robbery, and theorized that his client got “caught up” in something he did not know was going to happen.

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