Execution of Pennsylvania man postponed
The execution for the Pennsylvania man convicted of killing two Bradford County sheriff deputies has been postponed indefinitely. 34 year old Dustin Briggs was scheduled to be executed tomorrow. Officials from Governor Corbett’s office say his execution has been postponed…although the reason remains unclear.
Briggs shot and killed Bradford County Sheriff's Deputies Christopher Burgert of Sayre and Michael Vankuren of Warren Center in March of 2004.
The two deputies were serving Briggs with a warrant on his father’s property in Wells Township, when Briggs shot them.
