Door County Murder Suspect's Trial Rescheduled For April



The trial for the Illinois man facing murder charges in Door County -- which had been scheduled to begin in January -- is now slated to start April 8.

The attorney for Brian Cooper requested the extra time because of the amount of discovery material involved in the case.

The 35-year-old Cooper faces two counts of first degree intentional homicide -- one for the killing of 21-year-old Alisha Bromfield and the other for the death of her unborn daughter. He's also charged with third-degree sexual assault for allegedly assaulting Bromfield after he strangled her.

Cooper is accused of committing the crime at the Sand Bay Beach Resort August 19 after Bromfield  allegedly rebuffed his attempts at being more than friends.

Cooper's attorney, Shane Brabazon, is also looking to have the trial heard somewhere other than Door County.

Judge Todd Ehlers is expected to rule on the change of venue motion -- and a prosecution motion to admit statements of Cooper's -- at a status conference December 21.
