Trial date moved for Heather Cook

From Baltimore-

The trial date for former Maryland Episcopal Bishop Heather Cook has been moved up a day next week, which is a strong indication a plea deal is nearly done, the WBAL-TV 11 News I-Team has learned.

Cook is accused of killing bicyclist Tom Palermo in December while driving drunk and texting.

She faces jail time, and it's likely that would be a requirement of a plea agreement.

Neither prosecutors nor Cook's defense attorney would comment Thursday.
