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

James Edward Cowan, 28, was arrested when he arrived at a Hickory Hollow Place apartment complex by Metro Nashville police, the Tennessee Bureau of Investigation and ATF agents, authorities said. His girlfriend, 21-year-old Dimensha Carter, who was with him at the time of his arrest, was also arrested in connection with the case.

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

Last week police named Cowan as a suspect in Kaufman’s killing. The 26-year-old was shot and killed while she drove to her night shift at St. Thomas West Hospital.
