Eric M. Frein, the fugitive accused of killing one state trooper and seriously wounding another in an ambush, was captured Thursday and brought back to the barracks near Scranton, Pa., where his seven-week flight from the law began. 
Mr. Frein surrendered to federal marshals who found him hiding out in an abandoned airport in the Poconos Mountains, ending an intense manhunt that began Sept. 12, officials said in a news conference late Thursday. The marshals turned him over to the Pennsylvania State Police, who placed him in the slain trooper’s handcuffs and patrol car. 
“Frein has been stripped of his guns, his bombs and his freedom,” said Sam Rabadi, the special agent in charge of the Philadelphia field office of the federal Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives. “This community can now rest. He now has to answer for his violent actions.”
