NEW EXCUSE: ‘I Was Drunk’, Man Avoids Murder Charge After Killing Pregnant Woman and Having Sex with Her Corpse

The family of a pregnant 21-year-old who was strangled and raped are campaigning to change a Wisconsin law that let her killer avoid a murder charge because he was drunk.

Brian Cooper, 36, was found guilty last year of sexually assaulting Alisha Bromfield, but the jury were unable to decide on the murder charge because he had been intoxicated at the time of the killing.
