D.C. jury convicts teen in 2010 Godleski slaying
A Superior Court jury on Monday convicted a D.C. teen in the 2010 killing of a Catholic University student fatally shot while bicycling home from work.
Eric Foreman, 18, was found guilty of first-degree murder while armed and other gun- and robbery-related charges in the shooting of Neil Godleski, 31, in the Sherman Circle area of Northwest.
Prosecutors said Foreman, who was 16 at the time of the killing, shot Godleski in August 2010 after he grew angry that a friend had botched a shooting earlier that day.
Godleski was riding home from an evening shift as a waiter at Phillips Flagship Restaurant on the Southwest waterfront when he was shot. Prosecutors said Foreman fired at him as he pedaled by but missed with the initial shots. Godleski fell off the bike, and Foreman shot him at close range.
Prosecutors said Foreman was later heard saying that he had taken $60 and that he had shot Godleski for not giving up the money quickly enough. He also was heard saying that he shot Godleski because he was mad about the unrelated murder of a friend of his earlier in the summer.
Foreman faces a mandatory minimum sentence of 30 years in prison and the possibility of life without parole when he is sentenced Nov. 16.
