HAPPY VALLEY, OR (KPTV) -

A man who shot his girlfriend and killed her mother was sentenced to life in prison with a minimum of 40 years behind bars before he will be eligible for parole.

Jason Hogan Jr., 36, was found guilty last month on charges of murder, attempted murder and assault. He pleaded guilty to an additional charge of felon in possession of a firearm during the trial.

Hogan was arrested in August 2012. Deputies said he shot his girlfriend, Gina Perrone, and her mother, Norma Perrone, in their Happy Valley home and then went on the run.

Gina Perrone survived the shooting, but her mother did not.

Hogan was caught in Beaverton two days later. A former friend told FOX 12 at the time that Hogan confronted him and his wife at gunpoint at the Beaverton Transit Center the day after the shooting.

He said Hogan took them to Fred Meyer to cash the man's paycheck, but when store employees were unable to do so, Hogan stole the man's identification. After letting the couple go, Hogan called the next morning to again attempt to cash the check. The man agreed to meet, but called the U.S. Marshals Service leading to Hogan's arrest.  

During his initial court appearance in 2012, Hogan shouted, "I love you mama! I love you Gina!"

Investigators said Hogan and Gina Perrone had been in a long-term relationship that included a history of domestic violence.

Norma Perrone had worked for nearly 15 years at the downtown Portland law firm Davis Wright Tremain LLP, where she was a human resources coordinator.  

Gina Perrone did not speak in court Wednesday, but her brother did address Hogan.

"I'm happy with the outcome, that is a lot of time in prison," Randy Perrone said after the sentencing. "He's probably not going to make it out."

Hogan did not speak in court Wednesday.
