Deputy Game Protector Charles Beecham was shot and killed as he and several other game protectors attempted to arrest a man near Scranton for hunting on a Sunday.

The 22-year-old suspect was identified but never apprehended. His 17-year-old brother, who was with him, was tried for assault by pointing a gun at the officers. He was found guilty and released after paying the cost of court.
