Family Seeking Death Penalty in Death of Corrections Officer
WILKES-BARRE -- A man accused of killing a Wayne County corrections officer in 2013 is scheduled to go to trial in July. On Wednesday, his defense attorney made a rare move and stood in front of a federal judge asking that the death penalty be taken off the table, even before the trial starts. Jessie Con-ui was already a convicted murder when he allegedly killed that corrections officer.
