Jurors began deliberating the case Wednesday afternoon against a survivalist who killed a Pennsylvania State Police trooper and critically wounded a second trooper in an ambush at their barracks in Pike County in 2014.
The outcome of Eric Frein's trial is not in doubt. The defense offered no evidence or testimony and conceded the prosecutors' "mountain of evidence" pointing to his client's guilt.
If Frein, 33, is convicted of first-degree murder, the defense will shift its focus to trying to persuade the jury to spare his life.
Prosecutors presented more than 500 pieces of evidence tying Frein to the attack. District Attorney Ray Tonkin said Frein was a terrorist and a cold-blooded killer who was "literally hunting humans" when he opened fire on the Blooming Grove barracks September 12, 2014.
Cpl. Bryon Dickson II was killed and Trooper Alex Douglass was critically wounded in the attack.
Frein eluded capture for 48 days before U.S. marshals arrested him at an abandoned airplane hangar.
