Death penalty sought for 'cop killer' Eric Frein
U.S. marshals busted the self taught survivalists in an abandoned airline hangar, reportedly with a handgun and sniper. He gave up without a fight.
"Now he will face justice," Pennsylvania Gov. Tom Corbett said, adding that he would seek the death penalty.
Frein now faces multiple charges in relation to the killing of State Police Cpl. Bryon Dickson and wounding Trooper Alex Douglas in an ambush on the Blooming Grove barracks on Sept. 12.
They included first-degree murder, homicide of a law enforcement officer, attempted murder and possession of weapons of mass destruction.
