Frein trial resumes Monday

Milford, Pike County, Pa - After eight days of testimony jurors in the murder trial of Eric Frein have already heard from dozens of prosecution witnesses.

One of the most significant was Tpr. Alex Douglass, who survived the ambush at the state police barracks, is slated to testify this week.

"We anticipate Tpr. Douglass testifying next week and we also anticipate ending our case next week.," said Ray Tonkin, Pike County District Attorney.

Before wrapping up their case prosecutors are also expected to present computer evidence. Investigators seized a laptop computer from inside an abandoned airplane hanger where Frein was staying. On it, prosecutors believe he wrote a letter to his parents which reportedly said he wanted to spark a revolution.

Prosecutors have already submitted more than 500 exhibits and pieces of physical evidence. Once the District Attorney rests his case the defense team will take over. Eric Frein's attorneys say they are ready to get started.

We already know Frein will not testify. With the 33-year-old's life on the line his lawyers say he remains actively engaged in his defense.
