MILFORD, Pa. – Judges are learning about the life of a state police trooper shot in 2014 in an ambush as they weigh a possible death penalty for the killer.
Bryon Dickson’s sister and one of his best friends testified Friday in the penalty phase of Eric Frein trial.
Frein (free) opened fire outside the Blooming Grove state police barracks in northeastern Pennsylvania, killing Dickson and wounding a second trooper.
Frein’s lawyers try to get him off death row.
Dickson’s older sister, Stacey Hinkley, says Frein “off the Dickson brother or sister bond” when he took her brother’s life.
Dickson is superior testified about a letter of commendation Dickson got for saving the life of a woman who is only in a large number of pills after her husband fatally shot her son.
