The father of a Nashville nurse who was fatally shot in an apparent road rage attack on her way to work two years ago, lunged at the two suspects in court as they prepared to stand trial for his daughter's murder.

It was a dramatic moment captured on video earlier this week as Rick Kaufman flew across the Tennessee courtroom at the two men, but was held back by bailiffs and immediately escorted out.

Kaufman's daughter, 26-year-old Caitlyn Kaufman was on her way to work at Ascension Saint Thomas Hospital at the height of the COVID pandemic in 2020 when she was fatally shot in her car on Interstate 440.

Davaunte Hill and James Cowan appeared before a judge in a Davidson County courtroom on Tuesday for a hearing in the December 3, 2020, murder that police believe stemmed from a road rage incident. Both men are facing life in prison.

Caitlyn Kaufman was driving in rush hour traffic on I-440 in December 2020 when six bullets were shot into her Mazda CX5 SUV.

She was struck once and was able to pull over on to the shoulder of the highway but died before she could call 911.

Metro Police believe road rage was to blame for the shooting.

Hill and Cowan have been charged with criminal homicide in her death. A woman was also arrested and charged with harboring one of the suspects.

This week in court, Sgt. Chris Dickerson detailed what law enforcement saw when they got to the scene on I-440 West between Hillsboro Pike and West End.

'There was a parks officer, I believe he was on his way home. He drove by and he thought that it was a wreck. He thought a vehicle had rammed through the guardrail,' Dickerson testified.

Queensland woman sentenced to jail for killing abusive husband

  Queensland woman sentenced to jail for killing abusive husband A woman has been jailed for seven-and-a-half years for killing her husband after years of violent abuse, but will be immediately eligible for parole. Jean Louise Herholdt faced the Queensland Supreme Court on Friday for sentencing for the manslaughter of Sean Murray, 35, on August 27, 2020.The 30-year-old had pleaded guilty this week and admitted to stabbing Murray once in the back at their Murrumba Downs property, north of Brisbane, after he had beaten her.

'So, at first, he went by, and he was able to flip around, and he went up on the vehicle and he realized it had several bullet holes in the vehicle and then he realized there was an individual slumped over the steering wheel, so he positioned his vehicle in front of her and I believe he called additional units.'

Dickerson then told the court that the car was still running and Caitlyn's foot had been on the brake.

Police also went over in court what led them to arresting the suspects. They said one man, who became a confidential informant for Metro Police, traded guns with Hill and came forward to police for reward money. This led to Hill's arrest.

Colleagues at Ascension Saint Thomas paid tribute to Caitlyn as a 'courageous healthcare hero' during the pandemic and 'a dedicated and much-loved member of our [Medical Intensive Care Unit] MICU team...who was graciously called to serve our patients with compassion and kindness.'

Caitlyn's family plans to return to the courtroom for motions on Thursday.
