WATCH: Alec Cook Lawyer Explains ‘Kill’ in Notebook of Accused Rapist

Alec Cook, a 20-year-old University of Wisconsin junior accused of committing multiple sexual assaults, appeared in Dade County, Wisconsin, court on Thursday. His lawyers there described him as “insecure” toward women, and claimed that all of the allegations against Cook were actually involved consensual sexual encounters.

Five women have now formally accused Cook, leading to 15 charges against him.

But perhaps the most chilling aspect of the disturbing case were a series of notebooks kept by Cook and found by police as they executed a search warrant.

Police described the notebooks as lists of women they believed were either past or planned victims of Cook’s, along with notations about the acts Cook wished to perform against them.

After one woman’s name, Cook had written the word “kill,” police said.

But Cook’s lawyer disputed that characterization to reporters following Thursday’s hearing. Watch how he explained the “kill” notation, in the video at the top of this page.

Cook faces seven counts of second degree sexual assault, three counts of third degree sexual assault, one count of fourth degree sexual assault, two counts of strangulation or suffocation and two counts of false imprisonment, according to University of Wisconsin student newspaper news editor Alice Vagun, who covered the court hearing.

Cook, who has been suspended from the university, is being held in Dade County Jail on $200,000 cash bail.
