Bishop charged with drunk driving and manslaughter

In a spectacular fall from grace, the second-highest ranking Episcopal leader in the state of Maryland and the first female bishop in her diocese was charged with drunken driving and manslaughter after fatally striking a cyclist in late December.


Heather Cook, 58, turned herself in to authorities yesterday, according to her attorney, David Irwin. Online court records show Cook’s bail was set at $3.1 million. A trial is scheduled for February 6.
