PORTLAND, Ore. (KOIN) — Four months after a jury unanimously convicted him of killing 2 people and critically wounding a third on a MAX train 3 years ago, Jeremy Christian’s sentencing began June 23, 2020.

Shortly after 11 a.m., victim impact statements began. The first to take the stand was Demetria Hester and before she was done, Christian stood up at the defense table, ripped off his facemask and screamed at her: “I should have killed you!”

He was handcuffed by deputies and immediately led out of the courtroom.

Over more than a day, about a dozen witnesses provided victim impact statements. When those were completed, Jeremy Christian then made a statement of his own.

Here are the victim impact statements
during the sentencing of MAX killer Jeremy Christian.
