Nancy Cooper Murder Trial

I’ve never blogged about the Nancy Cooper case, but I’ve followed news reports of it since Mrs. Cooper was reported missing in July 2008.  Her body was discovered in an undeveloped cul-de-sac a couple of days after she went missing in Cary, North Carolina.  Her husband, who claimed that she went out for a run on July 12 and never returned, was arrested about three months later, on the heels of lengthy depositions he gave during a custody fight for the couple’s two daughters, Bella and Katie.  Mr. Cooper’s trial began on March 9, 2011, and is expected to last several weeks. is providing a live stream of the trial, archiving the recordings, Tweeting about testimony that cannot be aired per judge’s order, and maintaining well-organized case coverage on their website.  You’ll find links to all on the Nancy Cooper Murder Trial page on this blog.  Additionally, there is a forum for discussion of the trial at Friction Powered Exchange.
