A cop killer again had his death sentence upheld.
The Pennsylvania Supreme Court on Wednesday upheld the sentence for Robert Anthony Flor, 54, formerly of Bedminster Township, who shot Newtown Borough police officer Brian S. Gregg dead in 2005 while at St. Mary Medical Center in Middletown Township.
Gregg was born in Bristol and raised in Levittown.
Flor has tried to lessen his sentence numerous times since pleading guilty to the murder in 2006. His argument has been that he has intellectual disabilities and a U.S. Supreme Court decision ruled that intellectually disabled people are ineligible for the death penalty. He also has argued there was prosecutorial misconduct and his counsel was not effective.
Three mental health experts put on the record by Flor concluded that he suffered from one or more mental illnesses, including major depressive disorder and personality change due to brain damage.
Prosecutors argued that Flor’s complaints were meritless.
The majority of state supreme court justices ruled against Flor’s arguments Wednesday and said they were baseless.
Flor, a Falls Township native, took the gun from Newtown Borough patrolman James Warunek after being taken to the Middletown Township hospital following his arrest for DUI and punching his girlfriend. Gregg, Warunek and hospital employee Joseph Epp were all shot in the 2005 violence. A large manhunt ensued after and Flor was found hiding in a car on the hospital grounds.
“Robert Flor was convicted of killing police officer Brian Gregg, shooting police Officer James Warunek, and shooting hospital employee Joseph Epp in 2006 and has been trying to get off of death row ever since,” District Attorney Matt Weintraub said in a statement. “All he offers are excuses. We will meet him at every attempt he makes to evade his death sentence, which he earned.”
