L’Hon Siu’s son Khai Cook is “recovering each day” according to his grandmother, Lorna. “Its going to be a lifelong journey”, she stated to reporters. Cooke is a survivor in the automobile accident that took the life of his mother H’Luon Siu nearly three years ago when Eric Cox drove through a red light and collided with the vehicle that H’Luon was driving. Cox, who had already had one drunk driving conviction on his record, was found to be far over the legal limit when the accident occurred.
Cox was found guilty of second degree murder as a result of the collision, and a judge has sentenced him to at least 17 years in prison. However his defense team does plan to file an appeal.
