CROSSVILLE –Tennessee Bureau of Investigation agents charged a Crossville woman in connection with the killing of her estranged boyfriend.

At the request of 13th District Attorney General Randy York, TBI special agents started an investigation into the death of 31-year-old Louis Michael Tammaro shortly after it happened Friday morning around 4:45.

A neighbor called 911 to report a shooting at the home of Stephanie Cole. When deputies from the Cumberland County Sheriff’s Department arrived, they discovered Tammaro’s body with a gunshot wound and detained Cole at the scene.

During the investigation, agents developed information Tammaro recently moved out after living with Cole at the Ackia Drive address for several years. Reportedly, the couple was attempting to reconcile.

On Friday night, agents charged Cole, 36 with one count of first-degree murder. She remained without bond in the Cumberland County Jail.
