Sentence issued in Door County killing
STURGEON BAY, Wis. (AP) – A 37-year-old Illinois man has been sentenced to two consecutive life sentences without parole for the murder of a pregnant Wisconsin woman and her fetus.
Brian Cooper of Plainfield was sentenced in Door County Circuit Court Thursday after he was previously found guilty of two counts of first-degree intentional homicide. Cooper killed 21-year-old Alisha Bromfield, also of Plainfield, when the two were at a Nasewaupee resort for his sister Kellie Stryker’s wedding. He was not the father of Bromfield’s baby.
Cooper received two additional years in prison and two years of extended supervision on top of the two life sentences for a sexual assault that followed the murder. He will also pay restitution of more than $8,000. The district attorney said the funds will be used for funeral expenses.
