Pike County District Attorney Raymond Tonkin has set the time for Eric Frein’s preliminary hearing Friday.

In an email sent early Friday morning, he said it will begin at 9 a.m. before Magisterial District Judge Shannon Muir at the Pike County Court House in Milford.

Tonkin said he plans to file notice of his intention to seek the death penalty for Eric Frein. Tonkin made that announcement late Thursday at a news conference in Pike County hours after Frein was arrested by U.S. Marshals.
