ALBANY, Ore. – Page Lee Butterfield of Turner was sentenced to life in prison for second-degree murder in the shooting death of Corey Burdick, 43, of Sweet Home. 

He will be eligible for parole after 25 years in prison.

Butterfield, 27, was also sentenced Tuesday to nearly six years in prison for second-degree assault for shooting Ervin Smith, 67, who survived. That sentence will be served after the murder sentence. Butterfield was also given an 18-month concurrent sentenced on a charge of being a felon in possession of a firearm.

Butterfield was found guilty of the charges on Monday following a bench trial in front of Linn County Circuit Judge Thomas McHill. The trial lasted three and a half days. The judge took the case under advisement on Thursday afternoon and returned the verdict on Monday.

The two men were shot on Surrey Lane in Sweet Home in May 2019.
