Eric Frein appeal to be heard at Pa. Supreme Court

HARRISBURG, Pa. - Attorneys for convicted cop killer Eric Frein will be back in a Pennsylvania courtroom asking for his conviction to be thrown out.

Frein's attorneys are scheduled to argue Thursday before the Pennsylvania Supreme Court in Harrisburg.

Frein is convicted of killing Cpl. Bryon Dickson at the Blooming Grove State Police barracks in September 2014.

Frein also wounded Trooper Alex Douglass, who has needed more than 18 surgeries since the ambush attack.

Frein was arrested after a 48-day manhunt in the Poconos.

His lawyers say interrogators violated his right to remain silent and should have allowed him to speak with a defense lawyer the night he was captured.
