Charges Filed in Murder Case

Charges have been filed in the case of a 35 year old Illinois man accused in the death of a 21 year old acquaintance & her unborn daughter in Door County August 19th. As expected, Brian Cooper of Plainfield, Illinois faces two counts of first degree intentional homicide & one count of third degree sexual assault. Judge D. Todd Ehlers scheduled Cooper’s next date in Door County Circuit Court for September 11th at 11AM. He is being represented by Green Bay attorney Shane Brabazon who waived reading of the court complaint. That document indicates that Cooper was highly intoxicated when he strangled Alisha Bromfield to death in a room at a resort in the Town of Nasewaupee. Cooper & Bromfield had attended the wedding of his sister the previous day in the Egg Harbor area. Cooper said he became incensed while the two were in their hotel room when Bromfield indicated that she had no intention of having a relationship with him. The unborn child was not his. In the complaint, Cooper recounts how he choked Bromfield to death while she pleaded for the life of her child. Later, he attempted to have sex with the corpse. Cooper said, when he realized what he had done, he tried to commit suicide, but was unable to go through with it. He then called authorities from Sister Bay & gave himself up.
