usatoday – Another suspect in the fatal shooting of a nurse is arrested

NASHVILLE, Tennessee – A second wanted man in connection with the shooting death of nurse Caitlyn Kaufman along a Nashville freeway was captured Tuesday evening by a team of local, state and federal authorities.

James Edward Cowan, 28, was arrested on arrival at an apartment complex in Hickory Hollow Place by Metro Nashville police, the Tennessee Bureau of Investigation and ATF officers, authorities said. His girlfriend, Dimensha Carter, 21, who was with him at the time of his arrest, was also arrested in connection with the case.

Cowan, who was wanted for criminal homicide in the Dec. 3 murder, had visited the complex from a motel on Sidco Drive, where police believe he was staying for the past few days.

Police last week named Cowan as a suspect in Kaufman’s murder. The 26-year-old was shot and killed on her way to her night shift at St. Thomas West Hospital.
