Christopher Johnson to face lethal injection for murder of WCO Grove

Posted: Friday, October 5, 2012 9:24 am

The cries of "oh no" from Christopher Johnson's sister Brandy were instant Thursday night as the foreman of a 12-member jury from Lancaster County read the verdict that sentenced her brother to death for the murder of Pennsylvania Wildlife Conservation Officer David Grove on Nov. 11, 2010.

Johnson, 29, and the rest of his family also broke into tears as Adams County Common Pleas Judge Michael George gave the sentencing order, which will eventually send the Carroll Valley man to the State Correctional Institution at Rockview. He will be executed there by lethal injection, pending appeal, at a later date.

    I think we all know what a joke the appeal process is! They should move Mr. Johnson to the front of the line just in case we should ever get someone in power with some guts to enforce the death penalty.

    All well and good, but he will survive with appeals longer than most of us will be alive

    IT SHOULD SHOW HOW HAPPY STEELE IS IN THIS VIDEO. AFTER IT WAS ALL OVER HE NOW FEELS BAD AND IS THINKING ABOUT WHAT HE WILL TELL GOD ONE DAY. CANT YOU SEE IT IN HIS FACE. CANT WAIT FOR THE DAY THEY WILL ALL HAVE TO LOOK GOD IN HIS FACE AND TELL HIM WHAT THEY HAVE DONE.
