PORTLAND, Ore. (KOIN) — A judge will decide the fate of convicted killer Jeremy Christian on March 27, 2020 at 9 a.m.
Christian, who was convicted of all 12 counts against him on February 21, faces life in prison for his crimes. Prosecutors have pushed for a true life sentence while Christian’s defense team has asked for the chance of parole after 30 years.
Of the 12 charges for which he was convicted, two included first-degree murder charges. Christian stabbed Ricky John Best, 53, Taliesin Myddin Namkai-Meche, 23, and Michah David-Cole Fletcher in May of 2017 while aboard a MAX train. Only Fletcher survived the attack.
