The punishment phase is underway in Bryan for Brandon Keith Richardson, who was found guilty of murder for the 2011 shooting death of 22-year-old Brice Bennett.
In October 2011, Richardson told police he had intended to fire shots into the air to break up a fight between two customers in the Neal's Hideaway parking lot off FM 159 in Millican.
Bennett, who Richardson claimed was his best friend, ended up dead.
A jury found the Navasota resident guilty of murder Thursday. He faces up to life in prison.
