MIDLAND -  A Midland man has been found guilty of killing his own mother. It took a Midland jury a little more than three hours to convict 29-year-old Jeffery Eugene Keith of murder and arson.

Back in February of 2006 Keith beat his mother to death. He then stuffed her in a car and started a fire at her house hoping to catch the car on fire.

We're told Keith came back to the scene smelling of gasoline and had blood on his pants. The District Attorney's office tells us the jury will begin deliberating the punishment for Keith.      Keith could face life in prison.
