MILFORD, Pa. (AP) - A man charged with fatally ambushing a state police trooper and wounding another near a rural barracks in eastern Pennsylvania will travel to another county for jury selection in March.

The jury for 33-year-old Eric Frein will be selected in Chester County from March 9-13. The jury will then be bused to Pike County, where the shooting occurred, to try Frein, possibly beginning the first week in April.

Frein is charged with fatally shooting Cpl. Bryon Dickson II and wounding another trooper outside the Blooming Grove barracks in September 2014.

He led police on a tense 48-day manhunt before U.S. marshals caught him about 30 miles from the shooting scene.

Frein has pleaded not guilty. Prosecutors are seeking the death penalty.
