Lawmakers hold hearing on Frein manhunt

PIKE COUNTY, Pa. - State senators are holding a public hearing on the 48-day manhunt for convicted cop-killer Eric Frein.

Lawmakers met in Pike County Thursday morning.

That's where Frein shot and killed Corporal Bryon Dickson and wounded Trooper Alex Douglass outside the Blooming Grove barracks in 2014.

Frein was convicted in April and sentenced to death.

Lawmakers say the hearing will focus on how the manhunt affected the local community and what law enforcement might have done differently.

WFMZ's Jaccii Farris will have a recap of the hearing starting at 4:30 p.m.
