Defense attorneys say emotional testimony by a Pennsylvania state trooper's widow was unfair to the sniper who killed that officer and wounded another.  The lawyers claim the death penalty the sniper faces should be overturned.

The motion was filed Thursday in Pike County, Pennsylvania.  It's the first by the defense since Eric Frein was convicted last month in the murder of Bryon Dickson and the wounding of Alex Douglass two years ago.
