MILFORD, Pa. (AP) - Eric Frein's defense rested in the penalty phase of his trial, a week after he was convicted of murder of a law enforcement officer, terrorism and other offenses. He was captured after a 48-day manhunt back in 2014.
Frein faces a potential death sentence for killing Pennsylvania State Police Cpl. Bryon Dickson II and wounding Trooper Alex Douglass in the ambush attack at their barracks.
Tuesday, he decided not to take the stand to try to persuade jurors to spare his life.
His younger sister testified he was her "protector" against their abusive parents.
