A former Culpeper police officer who killed an unarmed woman has lost an appeal of his conviction. The Virginia Court of Appeals has rejected claims from 34-year-old Daniel Harmon-Wright (pictured). He’s serving a three-year sentence for voluntary manslaughter in the shooting death of 54-year-old Patricia Ann Cook in February 2012. Harmon-Wright fired seven shots, claiming she pulled away in her car after rolling up her window on his arm. Cook’s brother has filed a $5 million wrongful death lawsuit.
