An attempted reconciliation before something went horribly wrong. Officials with the Tennessee Bureau of Investigation say 36 year old Stephanie Cole was arrested and charged with first degree murder in the death of her ex-boyfriend, 30 year old Louis Michael Tammaro last Friday morning. Cole is expected to appear in court today (Monday) for arraignment. Investigators say neighbors called 911 to report gunshots fired around 4:45 Friday morning. Upon arrival at the scene, investigators found Tammaro’s body in the backyard of Cole’s Ackia Drive home. Cumberland County Chief Investigator Casey Cox says Tammaro suffered a single gunshot wound to the back of the head. Cole was taken to Cumberland Medical Center for treatment of an undisclosed nature, prior to being transported to the Cumberland County Justice Center. The crime has many in the community asking “why?” Officials say the couple had no prior history of domestic violence and had lived together at that residence for nearly 8 years together before Tammaro moved out.
