The widow of Pennsylvania State Trooper Bryan Dickson has filed a wrongful death lawsuit against Eugene and Deborah Frein, saying they psychologically manipulated their son into developing a strong dislike for police.

Tiffany Dickson says it was their influence that led Eric Frein, while he was living with his parents, to gun down two troopers and lead police on a 48-day manhunt in the Poconos.

Frein was convicted of murder and sentenced to death last April.
