|Family|| Mike Jergens (husband)
Virginia Kennison (mother)
Cora Kennison was the girlfriend (later wife) of Mike Jergens, who was accused and later imprisoned for raping women that he met during speed dating. She was based on Terri Schiavo.
Cora was bulimic and was binge drinking which landed her in the hospital before she was set to testify against Dr. Jergens.
Dr. Jergens later married Cora so Cora wouldn't testify against him, but she did anyway. After she testified, Cora ended up binge drinking which made her end up in a vegetative state with no chance of recovery. While her mother, Virginia wanted to keep Cora on life support, Dr. Jergens wanted her off in order to collect her life insurance to cover his legal fees.
In the end, Dr. Jergens was allowed to take Cora off life support and she passed away. Dr. Melinda Warner told Virginia the results of Cora's autopsy which proved that Cora's condition was irreversible and there was no chance of Cora ever recovering. Benson was also able to confirm that Dr. Jergens was telling the truth when he said that Cora told him she did not want to live in such a state giving her mother some peace of mind. (SVU: Starved)
