A former Culpeper police officer was found GUILTY of voluntary manslaughter and other charges Tuesday for killing a 54-year-old homemaker during a routine suspicious-vehicle check that spiraled out of control last February.

A Culpeper Circuit Court jury deliberated for about 9 hours before returning the verdict in the trial of Daniel Harmon-Wright, who fired 7 shots into Patricia Cook’s Jeep Wrangler when she tried to drive away from the then-officer. He faces a maximum of 25 years in prison.

RIP Patricia!

Harmon-Wright was hired by the Culpeper Police Department despite the objections of superiors, who said his excessive drinking and attitude made him a poor choice, according to charging documents.

He also had been disciplined in 2011 for forcing his way inside a home and brandishing his weapon at a man without probable cause, according to charging documents.

The jury has spoken. Voters will speak next.

RIP Patricia.
