Gov. Signs Execution Warrant for Man who Killed Cop, Roulette Couple’s Son

Anthony Flor

Harrisburg – Governor Tom Corbett today signed an execution warrant for Robert
Anthony Flor, who was sentenced to death for killing a Bucks County policeman.

Flor, formerly of Bedminster, pleaded guilty to first-degree murder in October 2006 for the shooting death of Officer Brian Gregg, 46, of the Newtown Borough Police Department. A jury sentenced Flor to death the following month.

Brian Gregg

Gregg is the son of Nancy and John Gregg, of Roulette, PA.

On the night of Sept. 29, 2005, police took Flor into custody for suspected drunken driving. Flor grabbed another policeman’s weapon and started shooting, wounding two others and killing Officer Gregg.

Flor, now 44, is a prisoner at the State Correctional Institution at Greene. His execution by lethal injection is scheduled for Sept. 29.

The warrant signed today is Corbett’s fifth execution warrant.

No one has been executed in Pennsylvania since 1999.
