Judge puts lock on Brad Cooper's assets
A Wake County judge issued a formal injunction Tuesday that prohibits a Cary man accused of murdering his wife from trying to liquidate any of the couple's assets, including their house.Posted — Updated
In a consent injunction filed Tuesday, Cooper is permitted to sell the house at 104 Wallsburg Court, but net proceeds must be held in escrow pending a further ruling. District Judge Debra Sasser ruled on the matter last month.
For everything else, Cooper and anyone working on his behalf are "enjoined restrained and prohibited from concealing, liquidating, assigning, transferring, selling or otherwise wasting or disposing of any and all of his remaining assets."
Bank accounts, stocks and his retirement money at Cisco Systems, where Cooper was employed at the time of his wife's death, are included.
Cooper was arrested in October and has been in the Wake County jail without bond. If convicted, he faces life in prison without parole.
