NASHVILLE, Tenn. – Two men have been arrested for the August 29 murder of 39-year-old Veronica Bozza.

Bozza's estranged husband, Timothy, 41, and his friend Cory Cotham, 37, are both charged with first degree murder.

The investigation led police to determine that both suspects conspired with each other to kill Veronica Bozza.

Metro police said she was shot to death in the living room of her New John Hagar Road in Hermitage, about an hour after she dropped off the couple's eight-year-old son to her estranged husband at a parking lot on Thompson Lane.

Bozza's boyfriend later discovered her body.

The investigation concluded that Cotham committed the murder, while Timothy Bozza took his son to his Robertson County home.

Deputy U.S. Marshals arrested Cotham late Tuesday afternoon in Glasgow, Kentucky.

He is being held there, as a fugitive from justice, awaiting a court hearing to determine if he will waive extradition to Nashville.

The indictment against Cotham also charges him with especially aggravated robbery.

Metro police detectives arrested Bozza Tuesday evening while he was driving in Robertson County.

He is being held at the Metro jail.

A judge has ordered that Bozza and Cotham be held without bail.

A criminal court arraignment date has not been set.
