Madison DA ties McDaniel camp to Cochran break-in

A man who on Wednesday pleaded guilty to conspiracy in the Rose Cochran nursing home break-in may have communicated with the McDaniel for Senate campaign about the time a video showing her infirmed was released, Madison County District Attorney Michael Guest told the Journal.

“There were communications between the campaign and the co-defendants at or about the time the video was released,” Guest said.

Three others were charged in May in connection with the April break-in.

Guest revealed the link to the campaign on Wednesday after accepting a plea agreement from John B. Mary, one of the alleged conspirators, but he declined to offer further details about what the campaign knew or when they knew.
