Some very sad news from the Berkshire County District Attorneys office.

This information is from a press release from the Berkshire County District Attorneys' office.

The Office of the Chief Medical Examiner informed the State Police Detective Unit that Charli Cook, 41, died at Baystate Hospital on Sunday afternoon.

She’s been hospitalized since July 11 after a brutal attack by her husband Michael Cook in North Adams.

The Berkshire District Attorney’s Office previously indicted Michael Cook on charges of assault to murder, assault, and battery by means of a dangerous weapon, assault and battery on a household member, and armed assault with intent to murder. He is being held at the Berkshire County House of Correction as a danger to the community.

 District Attorney Andrea Harrington will be seeking to indict Michael Cook on a murder charge.

Here is a statement from District Attorney Andrea Harrington:

I send my condolences to Charli Cook’s family and friends. The investigators, prosecutors, and victim advocates who have been working on this case were heartbroken by her passing. We are determined to obtain justice for Charli.
