Guilty and going to prison for life.

That's the verdict handed in by a jury in Big Spring in the murder trial of 23-year old Michael Harbert.

Harbert was accused of shooting Tory Mitchell to death last Christmas Eve.

He was also convicted of being a felon in possesion of a gun.

The jury gave him 20 more years for that crime, and fines totaling 30 thousand dollars.

The life sentence and the 20 year sentence will be served at the same time.
