September 8th, 2015 by WCBC Radio

WBAL reports former Episcopal bishop Heather Cook has plead guilty to auto manslaughter, DWI, driving while texting and leaving the scene of accident. Cook's vehicle struck and killed 41-year-old bicyclist Tom Palermo on a sunny Saturday afternoon in  December. Baltimore State's Attorney Marilyn Mosby stated that Cook's blood-alcohol level was at .22 after the crash, nearly triple Maryland's legal limit for driving.  Officials say Cook left the scene of the crash for about 20 minutes before returning. Palermo, a father of two, died of head injuries.
