Eric Frein More News
Pennsylvania has scheduled June 22 for the death of Eric Frein, the Monroe County man who ambushed and killed a state trooper in 2014, though the state has a moratorium on capital punishment.
Corrections Secretary John Wetzel signed a notice of execution Monday for Frein, 36, of Canadensis.
However, Gov. Tom Wolf’s death penalty moratorium, enacted in 2015, remains in effect. The moratorium does not halt death warrants from being issued. Defendants must seek a stay of the warrant.
Pennsylvania has executed three inmates since reinstating the death penalty in 1976. The most recent execution was in 1999.
