Police say 31-year-old Eric Frein hid in the woods across the street and used a high-powered rifle to kill Cpl. Bryon Dickson and wound Trooper Alex Douglass during a late-night shift change.
Frein was captured after a 48-day manhunt in the Pocono Mountains. He’s not yet entered a plea. Prosecutors are seeking the death penalty.
