Cop's Wife's Murder Suspected Contract Killing
(2008-04-21)
(wgvu) - DETROIT (AP) - The Detroit police chief says a man is suspected
in at least seven contract killings, including the December slaying
of a police sergeant's wife.
Police Chief Ella Bully-Cummings says 27-year-old Vincent
Smothers was paid to fatally shoot Rose Cobb outside a pharmacy in
Detroit on the day after Christmas.
Rose Cobb's husband, Detroit police Sgt. David Cobb, has been
arrested, but Bully-Cummings would not address anything related to
that arrest.
Smothers is to be arraigned on murder charges late Monday
afternoon in an unrelated case, a double-killing from last June.
The Wayne County prosecutor's office says it does not know
whether Smothers of David Cobb have retained attorneys, and there
is no listing for either man in Detroit.
