MILFORD, Pa. (AP) - The trial of an anti-government sharpshooter charged with killing a Pennsylvania police trooper in a 2014 ambush at their barracks has resumed after the suspect was briefly hospitalized.

Eric Frein’s parents said they were told he fell while brushing his teeth and hit his head.

Testimony resumed Thursday afternoon with Frein in the courtroom. A man told jurors he found the suspect’s abandoned Jeep three days after the ambush. Frein had run the Jeep into a swamp shortly after the shooting and fled on foot. He remained on the loose for 48 days before his capture.

Frein faces a potential death sentence if he’s convicted in the attack that killed Cpl. Bryon Dickson II and critically wounded Trooper Alex Douglass. Frein’s lawyer has said his client won’t take the stand.
