A mixed verdict was handed down on Saturday for the man accused in an accident that left a woman who was out jogging with her children in Mount Lebanon dead. It took the jury less than four hours to find Benjamin Cope, of Mount Lebanon, guilty of involuntary manslaughter and two counts of recklessly endangering another person.
Closing arguments will begin Saturday in the trial of Benjamin Cope. He’s accused of fatally striking 36-year-old Lisa Styles who was jogging with her children in a stroller on Washington Road in Mt. Lebanon last summer.
Testimony continued today in the trial of Benjamin Cope. He’s the man accused of hitting a jogger with his car, killing her. On day four of testimony in the trial, there was more back and forth in the court room.
