Murder-For-Hire Trial Begins

Posted: Updated:

NASHVILLE, Tenn. - The trial for a man accused of taking part in the conspiracy to kill his ex-wife began on Monday.

Timothy Bozza was charged with first-degree murder of his estranged wife, Veronica Bozza. Investigators believe Bozza and his friend Cory Cotham conspired with each other to kill Veronica. She was shot to death in the living room of her home within an hour of dropping off the Bozza's eight-year-old son to Timothy Bozza at a parking lot in 2010.

Investigators say Cotham committed the murder while Timothy Bozza headed to his Robertson County home with the couple's son.

On Monday, a jury was seated, and after opening statements six witnesses took the stand. Court ended just before 5 p.m. and will resume Tuesday at 9 a.m.

Cory Cotham, the man hired to kill Bozza's wife, was found guilty of murder. He was sentenced to life without parole in April 2012.
