— Prosecutors have turned over evidence against a Cary man charged with the July 2008 slaying of his wife.

At a status hearing Thursday, Wake County Assistant District Attorney Howard Cummings said his office has given computer hard drives and a Blackberry to attorneys representing Brad Cooper.

Cooper is charged with murder in the death of his wife, Nancy Cooper. She was found dead July 13, 2008, in an undeveloped subdivision several miles from the couple's Cary home.

Brad Cooper's attorneys asked in June for the evidence so that they could analyze how it affects their case.

A date for Brad Cooper's trial has yet to be set.
