Judge: Cooper can't liquidate assets

RALEIGH Brad Cooper, 35, is charged with first-degree murder in the death of his wife Nancy. Her body was found in an undeveloped subdivision about three miles from their Cary home.

The medical examiner said Nancy Cooper was most likely strangled.

Nancy's parents asked for the formal injunction to prevent Cooper from selling the house to pay his legal bills. They want the money to be used to support the couple's two daughters.

Cooper is now permitted to sell the house, but the money has to be held in escrow. He faces the possibility of life in prison if convicted.
