(Sarpy County, NE) -- A woman is sentenced to prison for her part in a 2018 Bellevue murder.
On Thursday, a Sarpy County judge sentenced Alisia Cooke to 60 years to life in prison after she pleaded guilty to second degree murder in connection to the stabbing death of 38 year old Brent Quigley. The sentence makes Cooke eligible for parole in 30 years.
On June 26, 2018, Bellevue Police officers found Quigley dead near his front door. Investigators say he suffered at least 20 stab wounds. In 2019, Cooke testified that she planned with Christopher Reagan and Raymond Davis to rob Quigley. Cooke said that she went into Quigley’s home and, while he was distracted, unlocked the front door for Reagan and Davis to enter the home.
After Reagan and Davis entered, Reagan proceeded to repeatedly stab Quigley, which resulted in his death. Reagan, Davis and Cooke then stole Quigley’s property.
Reagan pleaded guilty for his involvement, while a Sarpy County Jury previously convicted Davis of First Degree Murder.
Following Cooke's sentencing Deputy County Attorney Phil Kleine said, “What happened to Mr. Quigley was tragic and brutal. We appreciate the court giving an appropriate sentence for Ms. Cooke’s actions in the murder.”
Deputy County Attorney Scott Earl added, “Mr. Quigley’s life mattered and was viciously taken from him. It’s important that there is accountability and the court’s sentence today reflects that.”
Sarpy County Attorney Lee Polikov expressed his thoughts on the case by saying, “Our thoughts are with the family and friends of Mr. Quigley. Nothing can make up for the loss of life. In our role as prosecutors we seek justice and protection of the public, we feel that the court’s sentence accomplished that today.”
