No Trial Date Yet for Brent Shubert

January 27, 2014

By MJ Kneiser, WLHR Radio, Lavonia

A year after his arrest, no trial date has yet been set for Brent Shubert.

He is the Canon man accused of murdering his fiancé a year ago.

Northern Judicial Circuit District Attorney Parks White has asked for the death penalty in that case.

White said he hopes to hear by the end of the month when pre-trial motions will begin.

Shubert is charged in the death of his fiancé, Bonnie Anne Cooner.

Cooner disappeared in late January 2013 from the home she and her son shared with Shubert near Canon.

Cooner’s body was found several weeks later in early February 2013 in an abandoned well.

The state’s Chief Medical Examiner, Dr. Kris Sperry, said the cause of death was strangulation with blunt head trauma.

Shubert was arrested in Anderson, South Carolina just hours after Cooner’s body was found and returned to FranklinCounty.

He is charged with malice murder, aggravated assault and concealing a death.
