BROOKLYN - The man accused of killing a bus driver in Bedford-Stuyvesant was found guilty of second-degree murder this morning.

Prosecutors say 46-year-old Edwin Thomas was stabbed to death two years ago after he refused to give a transfer to 22-year-old Horace Moore, who skipped his bus fare.

Moore's attorneys set out to prove that it was not his intent to kill Thomas. However, the prosecution insisted that Moore went back on the bus with the sole purpose of slaying Thomas.

The Transit Workers' Union is hoping the MTA will now install partitions on buses to increase the drivers' security.

Moore will be sentenced Oct. 19. He is facing 25 years to life.
