04.19.16 | Bob Price

A pre-trial hearing is happening today for the Pennsylvania survivalist charged with killing a state trooper and injuring another during an ambush two years ago in the Pocono Mountains.

The hearing will decide if Eric Frein can mount an insanity defense.

The 32 year-old Frein evaded capture for nearly two months after the shooting death of Corporal Bryon Dickson.  

Trooper Alex Douglass was hurt in the attack outside the Blooming Grove barracks in Pike County.
