Ambushed trooper: 'Coward' shot me and killed comrade
He trekked through dense state forest in Pike and Monroe counties, eluding capture for 48 days before USA marshals found him on October 30, 2014, at an abandoned airport hangar in Pocono Twp.
Frein's attorneys would not discuss evidence they will present as mitigating circumstances. He called Frein a terrorist who sought to change the government through bullets and bombs.
Trooper Alex Douglass, 34, was shot and critically wounded as he rushed to Dickson's side.
Defense lawyer Bill Ruzzo says he'll appeal to jurors to spare Frein's life. According to the Pennsylvania Department of Corrections, only three people have been executed since 1976, when the U.S. Supreme Court restored the death penalty in the state. "The way they villainized him, we can't make him a holy man, but we're trying to make him a man".
Eric Matthew Frein was found guilty by a Pennsylvania jury Wednesday afternoon on all counts, which included multiple charges of first-degree murder and attempted murder.
Frein, 33, of Canadensis, hid in the forest across the street from the barracks the night of September 12, 2014, and fired four shots toward the front door.
Frein shot Dickson in the chest and through the shoulders and spine from a distance of 87 yards, waited almost 90 seconds until Trooper Alex Douglass came to Dickson's aid and then shot him, too, Tonkin said.
Eric Frein was convicted on a total of 12 charges, including first-degree murder, terrorism and weapons of mass destruction.
A death sentence would send Frein to death row, but the state has a moratorium on executions under Democratic Gov. Tom Wolf.
After the verdict was handed down, Frein's defense team said now their real work begins.
Evidence also included a notebook that prosecutors said Frein kept in which he detailed the night of the ambush.
Jurors have heard closing arguments in the trial of a survivalist charged with ambushing two troopers at a Pennsylvania State Police barracks.
The $11 million manhunt, which put him on the FBI's most wanted list and left the community on edge for weeks, ended when he was captured by US marshals outside an abandoned airplane hangar in a former resort near Tannersville, Pennsylvania.
