MILFORD, Pa. (AP) — A man who eluded police for 48 days after allegedly shooting to death a state trooper and wounding another is due in court for a preliminary hearing.

A Pennsylvania district judge must decide after the Monday hearing whether there are sufficient grounds to send the case against 31-year-old Eric Frein (freen) to county court for trial.

Frein is accused of fatally shooting Cpl. Bryon Dickson and critically wounding Trooper Alex Douglass Sept. 12 outside their state police station in Blooming Grove.

Prosecutors are seeking the death penalty. The hearing will be held in the Pike County Courthouse in Milford.
