KLAMATH FALLS, Ore. – A former BNSF Railway employee in Oregon has been convicted of murdering a supervisor in 2014, the Herald and News reports.

James Forshee, 62, was convicted of murder last week in the April 2014 shooting death of Emery Connor, 42, at BNSF’s yard in Klamath Falls. After a week of testimony and argument, it took the jury two hours to come to a decision. The judge sentenced Forshee from the bench to life in prison. He is eligible for parole after 25 years.

According to witnesses, Forshee came to work on April 17, 2014, at the BNSF yard and was talking to a co-worker when he suddenly walked into Conner’s office, pulled out a pistol, and opened fire. Forshee had been written up for a safety violation earlier in the week.
