TULSA, Oklahoma -

The jury in the murder case of a man shot and killed outside a night club came back with a guilty verdict early Saturday morning.

Deandre Bethel is one of two men charged with shooting Ivory two years ago. He was found guilty of first-degree murder, according to the Tulsa County District Attorney's Office.

His recommended sentence is life plus five years, five months and 30 days.

Police say Ivory was sitting in a car with friends when a group of men came up, pointed guns at them and demanded their wallets and cell phones. Ivory's two friends got away, but he was shot several times and killed.

Ivory was an assistant manager of a paint store and had no criminal record, not even a speeding ticket. Police said he was not a man living a high-risk lifestyle; he was simply a man preyed upon by criminals.

The other suspect in the case, Deandre Williams, is set to go trial on Monday.

Bethel is the brother of Terrico Bethel, who is serving life in prison for a murder-for-hire plot that killed University of Tulsa Hall of Famer and Tulsa businessman Neal Sweeney.
