(Gettysburg) -- A central Pennsylvania jury has sentenced a man to death for killing a state game warden during a poaching investigation.
The Adams County jury issued its verdict in the penalty phase of Christopher Johnson's trial yesterday evening, after several hours of deliberation. Jurors were deciding between giving Johnson life in prison or death in the killing of wildlife conservation officer David Grove.
Johnson was convicted earlier this week in Adams County of fatally shooting Grove in 2010.
Johnson spoke earlier yesterday, saying he was sorry for the pain he had caused Grove's relatives. He lamented that there was nothing he could do to bring Grove back.
On Wednesday, the jury heard from friends and relatives of both Grove and Johnson.
