Trooper Ambush Killer Eric Frein Sentenced to Death by Pennsylvania Jury
  by: iradioal - Philadelphia, PA

A jury has sentenced a trooper killer to death in Northeast Pennsylvania. Eric Frein, an anti-government activist who ambushed two Pennsylvania State Troopers in a sniper attack and then led authorities on a 48-day manhunt, was convicted on all 12 charges by the same jury last week. The 33-year-old opened fire on the Blooming Grove state police barracks in Northeast Pennsylvania on September 12th, 2014. He killed Cpl. Bryon Dickson II and wounded Trooper Alex Douglass. Frein, an experienced survivalist, then fled into the thick woods of the Pocono Mountains and eluded police for weeks until he was captured by US Marshals in an abandoned plane hangar. Prosecutors say he hoped to start an uprising against the government.

The trial lasted two weeks. The prosecution presented over 500 exhibits of evidence and called numerous witnesses. The defense closed its case without calling anyone to testify or presenting one piece of evidence. In the penalty phase, Frein again did not plead for his life. The defense did present an abusive relationship with Frein's father growing up as a mitigating circumstance. In Pennsylvania, Gov. Tom Wolf has placed a moratorium on executions in the state. The last execution in PA was held in 1999.
