Pike County District Attorney Ray Tonkin says jurors "have delivered the penalty that is so richly deserved by Eric Frein."

Defense Attorney William Ruzzo claims he's surprised by the jury's decision.
It's been almost 20 years since Pennsylvania has put to death a condemned killer.

Last fall, the state's highest court upheld a temporary moratorium on capital punishment in the Keystone State.

The last time the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania put to death a condemned killer was 1999.
