Jurors deciding if George Hitcho Jr. deserves the death penalty for killing Freemansburg police Officer Robert Lasso are hearing from the slain officer's family.
Jennifer Lasso tells a Northampton County jury her husband was killed just a few weeks before their wedding anniversary.
Several of Robert Lasso's family members gave testimony Monday at the start of Hitcho's sentencing hearing. He was convicted last week of first-degree murder for shooting Lasso in the head as the officer responded to an Aug. 11 disturbance call.
Hitcho's attorney says his client wasn't a violent person until after a series of head injuries.
