Murder Trial Rescheduled

The Door County murder trial date for a 35 year old Illinois man has been rescheduled. At the request of attorney Shane Brabazon, the trial of Brian Cooper of Plainfield, Illinois was moved to April 8th. The court proceedings had been scheduled to begin in January, but Brabazon asked for more time to prepare his defense during a hearing in Door County Circuit Court Thursday. Cooper is accused in the strangling death of 21 year old Alisha Bromfield, also of Plainfield, & by extension, the death of her unborn daughter, at a southern Door County resort on August 18th. Bromfield was more than six months pregnant when she died. Besides two counts of first degree intentional homicide, Cooper is charged with third degree sexual assault. The prosecution contends that the Illinois man had sexual contact with Bromfield’s corpse. Cooper & Bromfield were in Door County to attend the wedding of his sister. He told investigators that he killed Bromfield in a drunken rage because she indicated she had no desire to have a relationship with him.
