A female veteran of the US Air Force Security Forces accused of killing her husband and another woman in a high-speed chase has been convicted of two counts of reckless manslaughter.
28-year-old Shade Cooper was found responsible for the 2015 deaths of her estranged husband, Nicholas Cooper, and his female companion, Jocelyn Redding after she pursued them for ten miles in a high-speed chase, causing the couple to crash in an attempt to flee.
The chase began after Mr. Cooper -who was visiting his children at Shade Cooper’s apartment on Joint Base McGuire-Dix-Lakehurst in New Jersey- departed and entered Redding’s vehicle.
According to the Air Force Times, the Burlington County prosecutors say that Shade Cooper became enraged that another woman had picked up her husband and took off after them.
“As the pursuit continued at high speed, Redding was unable to negotiate a curve in the roadway,” the prosecutor’s office said in a comment obtained by the Courier-Post.
Out of control, the couple fatally crossed into an oncoming lane, slamming head-first into a pickup truck. They were pronounced dead on the scene.
A resident of East Granby, Connecticut, Cooper is to be sentenced on August 3rd by Superior Court Judge Philip E. Haines.
