BUSHWICK - A jury has found Keith Phoenix guilty of murder as a hate crime in his retrial for the 2008 beating of Jose Sucuzhanay.

Last month, a judge declared a mistrial in Keith Phoenix's case after the jury couldn't come to a verdict.

Prosecutors say Phoenix and his friend, Hakim Scott, attacked Sucuzhanay and his brother because they thought they were gay.

Phoenix could face up to 25 years to life in prison.

Scott was convicted of manslaughter by a separate jury and faces up to 40 years in prison.
