Authorities said Anney and Harrison knew each other. Anney falsely believed Harrison was involved in the murder of his friend in 2020.
Anney fled from the area and then 21 minutes later, he listed the murder weapon for sale online, authorities said.
The defendant also saw an article about the shooting, took a photo of it and shared it with his friend. Anney said he stayed up all night waiting for the article to be posted.

Investigators looked at Harrison’s text messages and concluded that Anney had killed the man.
In a press release, Harris County District Attorney Kim Ogg said, “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."
Ogg added: "We are grateful the jury saw exactly how cold and calculated this murder was and handed down the appropriate sentence.”
