Caitlyn Kaufman Wiki – Caitlyn Kaufman Biography

A man has been sentenced to 25 years in prison for the 2020 fatal shooting of a 26-year-old nurse in Tennessee. Devaunte Hill, who was convicted of the second-degree murder of Caitlyn Kaufman in January, was sentenced in Davidson County Criminal Court on Wednesday.

He previously confessed to killing Kaufman while the two were on the interstate in Nashville, according to ABC News. His friend and co-defendant, James Cowan, who was driving the car in which Hill was traveling, was acquitted by the jury. Neither Hill nor Cowan knew Kaufman.

Despite pleading for clemency after admitting to the crime, Hill received the maximum sentence of 25 years, The Tennessean reported. During the trial, Hill testified that he had been using drugs while in the car with Cowan. As they drove on the interstate, Kaufman, on his way to a night shift at St. Thomas West Hospital in Nashville, cut into Cowan’s car, ABC News reported.
