It took an Adams County, Pa., jury just four hours to sentence 29-year-old Christopher Johnson to death by lethal injection for killing Wildlife Conservation Officer David Grove.

Gvove, 31, was killed in an apparent shootout as he tried to arrest Johnson for poaching. Reports at the time of Grove’s death said he had West Virginia ties — he attended college at Appalachian Bible College near Beckley.

The Lebanon, Pa., Daily News has the sentencing story.
