Two congressmen from our area have written letters to the attorney general and the United States ambassador to Argentina, urging the return of a man wanted for murder.

Anthony Franklin is accused of the 2012 murder of Frank Spencer in Columbia County.

Franklin was arrested last year in Buenos Aires, but has not yet been brought back to Pennsylvania to stand trial.

Now, Congressmen Lou Barletta and Tom Marino are calling for his return.

Spencer had been married to Franklin’s daughter.

Franklin’s daughter has also been charged in connection with the death of her ex-husband.
