I've been watching some of this trial on wral.comThey are streaming the trial live and have video archives of the whole trial.
Yesterday the jury got to look at 20-year-old Elena Bright Shapiro's car outside the courthouse.
His lawyers aren't helping him so far, it will be interesting to see if they can muster up a defense at all. Lesson learned so far, never ask a question that you don't know the answer to! Case in point, the defense asked a witness, Lee Panosian, who had heard Dr. Cook's loud a offensive language at the country club bar, "He didn't slur his speech, did he?" "No, that's not correct, his speech was slurred!" "You didn't report that to the police, why didn't you mention that to them?", "They never asked!"
I think this slimball is going to serve a long sentence, too bad Tolly Carr didn't face the same penalty.'
Man that is a horrible. Where did this happen? So I guess he was drunk and hit a sitting occupied car and killed the driver? That really sucks 20 is too dang young.
It happened in Raleigh NC, she was in stopped in the turn land and this piece of shit hit her from behind doing 80 - 100 mph
They need to throw the book at him! If it had been my kid, the only trial would be MINE!!!!! Long distance, the next best thing to being there! I've got a cousin who got a DUI and before he could get to trial, got another one! They sentenced him yesterday to 30 days in county! Not enough! We need to get these drunks off our streets! I like to take good drink now and then, but I DONT DRIVE!!!!! Bust their azzes! Good for the judge.
If you get behind the wheel drunk, only bad things will happen..he will have to sleep in the bed he made..just a shame that someone else lost there life because he was a fucktard..FTG!!
I knew the girl that was killed by that cunt. What a dayum disgrace he even gets a plea. Shut down that shithole bar Pipers Tavern, and hang Cooks ass in Moore Square
There was a kid hit by a drunk driver in Columbia while crossing the street been in ICU all week, no excuse for driving drunk lock him up.
Strap him down in the street and let the family run him over SLOWLY with a tracked vehicle (dozer, tank, etc)
state rest, defense begins...
Dayum, no defense, but then again what possible defense could this scumbag have...
The lawyer is counting on getting the law voided on appeal. Second degree murder requires "malice aforethought," and going out and getting drunk, by itself, doesn't constitute malice. By going for the maximum penalty, the prosecutor has set up the possibility that Cook will walk, or at the most, just get a slap on the wrist.

Listen to the closing arguments and the judges instructions to the jury.
I wouldn't be surprised if the jury returns a guilty (of murder in the 2nd degree) today, if not Monday!
I listened to most of the testimony over the past 9 days and I wouldn't have any difficulty in finding him guilty in less than 20 minutes.
I think that Roger Smith Jr.'s closing arguments for the defense are despicable !
Look, aint nuthin gonna bring little Elena back, Cock, ahem Cook should be sentenced to a minimum of 20.
Another prime example of how fucked up the Tar Heel state is and sucks donkey dick at enforcing LAWS
Hang him in Moore Square
Skin her alive and display her under salt water at the Aquarium in Kure Beach
