The two men were accused of killing 26-year-old Caitlyn Kaufman as she drove to her shift at St. Thomas West Hospital in December 2020.

Prosecutors said Hill shot at Kaufman's car at least six times because she cut them off. Cowan was driving the car.

The defense team argued Hill didn't intend to kill Kaufman and said there is no proof Cowan meant for the shooting to happen.
