The Berkshire district attorney intends to seek a murder charge indictment against a North Adams man who has been held by authorities since the brutal beating of his wife five months ago.

The Berkshire Eagle  reports that 41-year-old Charli Cook died at Baystate Medical Center in Springfield this past Sunday. She'd been hospitalized there since July 11th after what authorities say was a brutal attack by her husband, Michael Cook Sr., at the couples Chase Avenue home.
