On August 16, 2000, Mary Cook’s husband, John Cook IV,
was stabbed to death in his home by Guy David England, Mary
Cook’s “lover”. Cook and England were indicted by a Hardin
County grand jury on one count of complicity to commit murder.3
England pled guilty to murder and was sentenced to life in
prison without the possibility of probation or parole for 25
years and testified against Cook at her trial. Following a sixday
trial, the jury convicted Cook of complicity to commit
murder and authorized a sentence of life in prison without the
possibility of probation or parole for 25 years. On November 5,
2002, the trial court sentenced Cook in accordance with the jury
verdict. Our Supreme Court affirmed the judgment and sentence
in an unpublished Opinion on May 20, 2004.4
On September 2, 2004, Cook filed a pro se motion for
post-conviction relief pursuant to RCr 11.42 to vacate or set
aside the judgment entered against her. The motion raised ten
grounds for relief. On September 20, 2004, a circuit court
judge, who was not the judge who tried the case, entered an
order denying Cook’s motion without holding an evidentiary
hearing.
