MIDLAND - He already knows he's going to prison, but he doesn't know how long.  

A jury continues to hear evidence in the sentencing phase of 29 year-old Jeffrey Eugene Keith.  

Keith was convicted Wednesday for the murder of his mother, two years ago.

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.  

Keith could face life in prison.
