A 20-year-old man in Texas will spend the better part of a century behind bars after being convicted of killing a 22-year-old he mistakenly believed had murdered his friend, luring the victim into an ambush, executing him, then celebrating when news articles about his death broke.

Harris County District Court Judge Andrea Beall on Friday ordered Siten Anney to serve a sentence of 75 years in a state correctional facility for the 2020 slaying of 22-year-old Trevor Alan Harrison, court documents reviewed by Law&Crime show.

A jury found Anney guilty on one count of murder following a four-day trial and recommended a sentence of 75 years, which Judge Beall agreed with in his formal sentencing.

Prosecutors said that despite Anney’s belief, there was no evidence connecting Harrison to Anney’s friend’s murder.

“This defendant spent hours doing everything he could to lure this young man to his death, including sending messages and making calls to set up the victim,” Harris County District Attorney Kim Ogg said in a statement following the sentencing hearing. “We are grateful the jury saw exactly how cold and calculated this murder was and handed down the appropriate sentence.”

Just 21 minutes after Harrison was fatally shot, prosecutors say that Anney “put the murder weapon up for sale online.” Additionally, “when news broke of the fatal shooting, Anney took a screenshot of the article and sent it to his friends, saying he stayed up all night waiting to see it.”
