— The Cary home once shared by Brad Cooper and his wife, Nancy, is up for sale.

104 Wallsburg Court, the 12-room home was listed Monday on the Triangle real estate market at $349,900.

Described in the listing as a "brick-front beauty in desirable Lochmere," it has spacious rooms, "tons of storage, four bedrooms, 2½ baths and a bonus room.

Earlier this month, a moving crew loaded a 26-foot van with furniture and electronics that belong to the couple. Workers said the items were going to storage.

Brad Cooper, 35, is in jail on a first-degree murder charge in connection with his wife's July 12 death.

A man walking his dog found Nancy Cooper's body lying on the bank of a storm water pond in an undeveloped subdivision less than three miles from the couple's home.

The 34-year-old mother of two was likely strangled, according to a medical examiner's report.

Earlier this month, Wake County District Judge Debra S. Sasser issued a temporary restraining order that prohibits Brad Cooper from selling any of his possessions or liquidating any of his assets.

Nancy Cooper's family, which has temporary custody of the Cooper children, asked for the order, claiming they believe Brad Cooper has instructed his family how to dispose of his assets.

Under Sasser's ruling, if the house sells, the net proceeds must be held in escrow pending a further ruling.

Although the Cooper house has been treated as a crime scene, police have not said where they think Nancy Cooper was killed.

Local real estate agents say there is no law requiring sellers to disclose information about crimes that might have occurred in homes up for sale.
