Police say Bosley killed Amy Ndao, 38, on the night of Oct. 5 at the couple's home on Iowa Avenue near Churchill Downs. After shooting Ndao, Bosley then carried her body into the backyard of the home and burned it in an attempt to hide the evidence.

The next day, Bosley was involved in a DUI crash in Ndao's car. While investigating the accident police found a .380 handgun in the car. They now believe it was the weapon used to kill Ndao.

Bond for Bosley was set at $150,000 cash. He was ordered to have no contact with the Ndao family. His next court date was set for Oct. 20.
