Man convicted of killing boss and co-worker at Vernon lumberyard
This post has been corrected. See the note at the bottom for details.
A 53-year-old Santa Fe Springs man will be sentenced next month for killing his boss and a co-worker at a Vernon lumberyard after a jury convicted him of two counts of first-degree murder.
Moreno pulled out a gun moments after refusing to fill a lumber order, witnesses told The Times last year.
He shot Bohnhoff in the company’s office first. Bohnhoff's father, Charlie, cradled him before running to the shed, where he found the mortally wounded Sanchez.
Co-workers had described Moreno as a skilled certified lumber grader who could be distant and temperamental and prone to leaving work for weeks.
Moreno is scheduled to be sentenced Aug. 16 and faces life in prison without the possibility of parole.
For the record, 2:19 p.m., July 20: A previous version of this post identified the victim as Alan Bohnhoff. His full name was Charles Alan Bohnhoff.
