Suspect in state trooper shooting headed to trial

EASTON, Pa. - The man accused of shooting a Pennsylvania state trooper during a traffic stop in Northampton County is set for trial.

Daniel Clary, 22, was in court Thursday for a formal arraignment on a slew of charges, including attempted homicide.

Clary is accused of opening fire on Trooper Ryan Seiple and Cpl. Seth Kelly when they tried to arrest him for DUI on Route 33 in Plainfield Township back on November 7.

Kelly was shot multiple times and spent several weeks recovering in the hospital.

Prosecutors are going for multiple life sentences.

"[Clary's] not getting any deals, I'll tell you that. He got his break when Corporal Kelly survived. That is the only break he will get," said Northampton County Prosecutor Terry Houck at Clary's preliminary hearing.

A date for Clary's trial has not yet been set. The defense has 30 days to file any pre-trial motions.
