Game-Warden-David-Grove.jpg(Gettysburg) -- An Adams County man convicted of killing a state game warden during a poaching investigation has apologized to the victim's family.

Christopher Johnson says he is sorry for the pain he has caused the relatives of wildlife conservation officer David Grove.

Johnson spoke Thursday during the penalty phase of his capital murder trial. After the hearing, a jury will decide whether he will be sentenced to death or life in prison.

Johnson was convicted earlier this week in Adams County of fatally shooting Grove in 2010.

Johnson lamented Thursday that there is nothing he can do to bring back Grove.

On Wednesday, the jury heard from friends and relatives of both Grove and Johnson.
