Frein guilty of all charges

Frein (file)

MILFORD – The jury in Pike County Court needed about four hours to find Eric Frein guilty of all 12 counts in the murder of a state police corporal and wounding of a trooper a year and a half ago.  The charges against Frein included first degree murder of a law enforcement officer, which carries a possible death sentence. 

The jury will begin the penalty phase deliberations tomorrow. 

The prosecution, headed by Pike County DA Ray Tonkin, is expected to review all of the evidence presented during the nine days of testimony. 

The defense, which called no witnesses and presented no evidence during the trial, is expected to call several witnesses, including Frein family members and experts, during the penalty deliberations.
