BROOKLYN - The man found guilty of killing a bus driver in Bedford-Stuyvesant was sentenced to 20 years to life in prison today.

A jury had found 22-year-old Horace Moore guilty of second-degree murder for stabbing 46-year-old Edwin Thomas two years ago after he refused to give a transfer to 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 drivers' security.
