An Episcopal bishop is being charged in connection with a bicyclist's death in North Baltimore. Newly sworn-in city State’s Attorney Marilyn Mosby announced the charges this morning against Bishop Heather Cook. They include vehicular manslaughter, leaving the scene of a deadly accident, DUI, and texting while driving. Thomas Palermo died nearly two weeks ago after he was struck while riding his bicycle in a bike lane on Roland Avenue by a car that initially left the scene, but later returned. Mosby says a warrant has been issued for Cook’s arrest.
