Widow speaks out in Frein case

MILFORD, Pa. (AP) — The widow of a slain Pennsylvania State Police trooper has described the toll his death has taken on her and their two young sons.  Tiffany Dickson testified Thursday at a hearing to determine whether her husband’s killer will be sentenced to death or to life in prison without parole.  Eric Frein was convicted of capital murder, terrorism and other offenses in the 2014 ambush that killed Cpl. Bryon Dickson II and critically wounded a second trooper.

Tiffany Dickson says her oldest son still wakes up at night screaming and has anger issues, while her youngest is defiant and hates school. She says she’s sad and lonely and won’t be able to grow old with her husband.  A prosecutor urged jurors to sentence Frein to death. His lawyer asked for mercy.
