      STURGEON BAY- An Illinois man will spend the rest of his life in a Wisconsin prison, for killing his pregnant girlfriend and her unborn child in Door County.37-year-old Brian Cooperreceived two life sentences Thursday. He will not be eligible for parole.Cooper accompanied his girlfriend, 21-year-old Alisha Bromfield to his sister's wedding at a Door Country resort in 2012. After she rebuffed his romantic advances, he strangled her. Cooper also sexually assaulted her afterwards.He was convicted during a second trial in May, after the first trial ended with a hung jury.Cooper successfully argued in the first trial he was too drunk, so he couldn't have intended to kill Bromfield.That has since led to a state law that eliminates the intoxication defense.{}
