Governor Calls for Halt on Death Penalty in Frein Case
Monday, February 16, 2015 6:38 PM EST
Pennsylvania Governor Tom Wolf's call for a halt on the death penalty won't keep the Pike County district attorney from seeking the punishment against accused cop killer Eric Frein.
Frein is accused of the ambush shooting last September which killed one Pennsylvania State Trooper and injured another.
Pike County DA Raymond Tonkin released a statement saying if Frein is found guilty he will still ask the jury to weigh the aggravating circumstances.
Tonkin had filed notice to seek the death penalty in January.
Wolf's moratorium will stay in effect until a state Senate committee's study on the punishment is finished.
