Man on Death Row for Killing Borough Cop to Appeal Again

Flor’s attorneys are seeking to have his death sentence overturned because they say he has intellectual disability.

Robert Flor, the man on death row for killing Newtown Borough Police Officer Brian Gregg in 2005, will appeal his sentence during a hearing Thursday, the Courier Times reported.

Flor’s attorneys are seeking to have his death sentence overturned because they say he has intellectual disability that should exclude him from execution, the Courier Times reported.

Gregg, 46, was killed in the line of duty on Sept. 29, 2005.

Flor, who was in custody for suspected drunken driving, was taken to St. Mary’s Hospital for testing. While there, Flor grabbed another policeman’s weapon and started shooting, wounding two others and killing Gregg.

Earlier this year, a portion of the Newtown Bypass was renamed the Newtown Bypass the Officer Brian Gregg Memorial Highway in his honor.
