A Davidson County jury convicted a man for hiring a hitman to kill his estranged wife in August of 2010.

Police said Veronica Bozza's estranged husband, Timothy, helped plan her murder while Cory Cotham, pulled the trigger, shooting her multiple times inside her New John Hagar Road home.

Police said Veronica had just returned home from dropping off the their eight-year-old son when she was killed.

The 39-year-old woman's boyfriend found her body a short time later. 

Authorities said during the trial it was discovered Timothy Bozza agreed to pay Cotham $10,000 to kill Veronica.

The two men also reportedly agreed on a "crisscross plan" where Cotham would kill Veronica and Timothy would in turn kill the ex-husband of one of Cotham's girlfriends.

Timothy Bozza is charged with first-degree premeditated murder.

The conviction carries a life sentence of at least 51 years in prison.

Cotham was convicted in February of first degree murder and especially aggravated robbery, and received a sentence of life plus 25 years in prison.
