COFFEE COUNTY, Tenn. - The woman accused of being the mastermind of her fiance's murder has been extradited back to Tennessee.

Connie King was arrested earlier this month in Daytona Beach, Florida. Authorities said she set up the death of 41-year-old Tommy Colucci of Coffee County in November. Her estranged husband Troy King was arrested in March near San Diego as he tried to enter Mexico.

Troy King was charged with first degree murder and felonious first degree murder and theft over $1,000. He was brought back to Tennessee in March, and held on $1 million bond.

Authorities said Colucci was the stage manager for country music singer Jo Dee Messina.

Colucci was shot to death at his home on Maple Springs Home in Manchester last November in what initially appeared to be a home invasion. Connie King was also attacked in the incident, and was found covered in blood wandering the street.

A motive for Colucci's shooting has not been released.
