• Ormond Beach woman arrested in connection with Tennessee murder


    ORMOND BEACH, Fla. - An Ormond Beach woman wanted on murder charges in Tennessee is in jail Tuesday.

    Connie King was arrested in Daytona Beach Tuesday morning.

    Investigators said she's the second suspect in the case of a man found shot to death in his home.

    A few hours before police arrested King, she was working at Indian Motorcycles in Daytona Beach.

    Investigators said her fiance of one week, 41-year-old Thomas Colucci, was shot dead last November in Tennessee.

    "They knew where she was because like I said, a couple of months ago they was here and they met with our detectives and detectives took them over. They interviewed her," said Jimmie Flynt with Daytona Beach police.

    Detectives in Tennessee said Colucci was shot several times. At the time, they found King injured at the murder scene, but she wasn't arrested then.

    Employees at the store said King was good worker and smiled a lot. They knew little about her problems in Tennessee and were surprised when detectives walked into the store and arrested her.

    Detectives say Colucci had ties to Nashville's music scene working in production and even toured with the band 311 and country star Jo Dee Messina.

    In March, authorities in California arrested Troy King, Connie King's estranged husband, for Colucci's murder.

    He had a violent past that included an arrest for first-degree murder in the 1990s. It was later reduced to a lesser charge.

    Detectives in Tennessee haven't said how Connie King was involved in the murder, or the motive behind it.
