    A Brooklyn man has been convicted of stabbing a city bus driver to death for refusing to give him a free ride.

    Brooklyn district attorney spokesman Jonah Bruno says Horace Moore was found guilty of second-degree murder Thursday during a bench trial before state Supreme Court Judge Gustin Reichbach.

    The 22 year old faces a maximum of 25 years to life in prison when he's sentenced Oct. 19.

    Police say Moore boarded a bus in December 2008 and demanded driver Edwin Thomas give him a free transfer ticket.

    Police say the two argued before Moore stabbed Thomas multiple times in front of passengers.
