A murderer who appealing his 30 year sentence for killing a cyclist and stealing $60 in August 2010 will get a new hearing in early 2018.
Eric Foreman was found guilty of fatally shooting Neil Godleski in the unit block of Sherman Circle. According to the arrest warrant, a witness said they heard Foreman say that he “wanted to go pull a move.” Godleski was biking when Foreman shot him. Foreman then fired two shots at close range before fleeing with the money.
Foreman was arrested a month after the shooting. He declined a government plea offer and was found guilty of first-degree murder while armed.
Foreman’s defense attorney appealed the sentence two days after the sentencing, and the case was sent back to the trial courts on April 30, 2015.
A status hearing is scheduled for March 16, 2018.
