(Gettysburg) -- Closing arguments have ended in the penalty phase of the trial for an Adams County man convicted of killing a state game warden during a poaching investigation.
A jury, brought in from Lancaster County, will now be deliberating whether to sentence Christopher Johnson to life in prison or death in the killing of wildlife conservation officer David Grove.
Johnson spoke yesterday during the capital murder trial and said he is sorry for the pain he has caused Grove's relatives. He lamented that there is nothing he can do to bring Grove back.
Johnson was convicted earlier this week of fatally shooting Grove in 2010 in Freedom Township. On Wednesday, the jury heard from friends and relatives of both Grove and Johnson.
