A convicted murderer who stabbed another man in broad daylight in a shoe store in Sydney and accessories has been in prison for at least 20 years.

& # 39; He was totally incapable of controlling his violent impulses, using a knife to obtain redress for, in this case, an imagined complaint, & # 39; said Judge Campbell in the Supreme Court of New South Wales.
Johnson was also convicted of assaulting Mr. Morrison's friend, Scott Campbell, immediately after the murder.
The judge said that Mr. Morrison was at least known to the offender by sight & # 39; and probably as a result of previous encounters.

The evidence for the court-alone case stated that Johnson and Mr. Campbell's partner participated on the same day of the murder in the same methadone clinic in Campsie.
"For no reason, the perpetrator, and apparently his partner, jumped to the unfounded conclusion that Messrs. Morrison and Campbell bombarded them with the intention of ambushing the perpetrator," the judge said.
He said Johnson stepped into a shoe store & # 39; that confronted with & # 39; Mr. Morrison tried to turn on and pronounce words in the sense of & # 39; Are you fighting me? & # 39 ;.
Johnson then produced the knife and stuck it twice in Mr. Morrison's left pelvis and thigh area, severing the 41-year artery's artery.
He gave Mr Campbell a punch before he quickly left the store.
The judge noted that Johnson has an & # 39; unfounded suspicion & # 39; had his victim chase him and that it was & # 39; sheer coincidence & # 39; was that they were in the same place that day.
Johnson was 18 when he killed 25-year-old Peter John Miller in the upper back when he was on his way home from a hospital in Newcastle in June 1993.
Mr. Miller had received sutures there for three non-lethal knife wounds that Johnson had inflicted earlier in a fight that broke out between the couple, who knew each other while drinking heavily with a group.
Johnson made recordings in a police interview that he intended to kill Mr. Miller, apparently motivated by personal hostility.
He was convicted and imprisoned for the murder and released under strict supervision in 2015.
On Friday, Johnson & # 39; s second murder verdict became obsolete, meaning that he is eligible for parole from September 2037.
