Man accused of killing trooper appeals death penalty sentence and is denied

Local News

The State Supreme Court upholds the death penalty against a man convicted in the deadly ambush of two state troopers.

According to Penn Live, the decision against Eric Frein comes nearly two years to the day after a Pike County judge imposed that ultimate penalty. 

Frein was convicted of the 2014 ambush murder of a state police corporal outside the Blooming Grove Police Barracks. A trooper was also shot and wounded.

The Supreme Court decided errors made during the trial and penalty phase made no difference in the outcome of the case.
