Frein Guilty on All Charges for Killing of PA State Trooper

April 20, 2017  | 

The man accused of killing a Pennsylvania state trooper was convicted of all counts by a jury on Wednesday and now faces the death penalty — more than two years after he led law enforcement on a nearly 50-day manhunt.

Eric Frein was convicted on a total of 12 charges, including first-degree murder, terrorism and weapons of mass destruction. His trial now enters the penalty phase, where jurors will have to decide between a death sentence and life in prison.

Frein, 33, who authorities say was an anti-government survivalist, was on trial for the killing of state Cpl. Bryon Dickson and wounding trooper Alex Douglass in Sept. 2014 during a sniper attack on a police station during a shift change.
