Asmayit Hagos, 22, appeared at the news conference held by the Cherry family after Kenneth Cherry's death on Feb. 21. It was that appearance that reportedly led parole officers to arrest Hagos.

Hagos had a warrant out for her arrest for allegedly violating her probation in California for prostitution related charges in Las Vegas, according to the Nevada Department of Parole and Probation.

Hagos is the former girlfriend of Cherry, a 27-year-old aspiring rapper who also went by Kenny Clutch. She is also the mother of one of Cherry's children.

Cherry was shot to death in his Maserati on the Las Vegas Strip. The shooting triggered a multi-vehicle crash that killed two other people.

Ammar Harris, 27, is believed to be the gunman in the attack. He remains in custody in California as he awaits an identification hearing set for March 14.
