Ricky Neal was sentenced Tuesday by a Smith County jury to life in prison for the 2013 fatal shooting of Chris Mass at the Broadway Square Mall in Tyler.

The defense had asked the jury to consider 20 years or less.

The judge read the charge to the jury and stated Neal will be eligible for parole in either half his decided sentence or half of the sentence decided, whichever is less.
