STURGEON BAY, WI (WTAQ) - A man from Illinois charged with murdering a woman and her unborn child at a Door County resort was back in court Thursday.
The judge has decided that the jury for the April 8 trial for Brian Cooper will come from outside the county, but it will still be held in Sturgeon Bay.
Cooper pled not guilty by reason of mental disease or defect to fatally strangling Alisha Bromfield last August.
Authorities say the pair were visiting Door County for a wedding. Bromfield allegedly told Cooper she wanted to break off their relationship.
A judge ruled Cooper's statements are admissible at trial, along with a 911 call he made to authorities.
