UPDATE: Chong Lee has been found guilty of first degree intentional homicide in the murder of Joshua Richards at the Luna Lounge in Appleton in 2013.
A jury reached a verdict Wednesday evening after hours of deliberation. 
It was the verdict Richards' family has waited for for more than two years.
"We knew he was guilty all along," said Richard's mother Jackie Pische. "We knew it, and justice and the jury made the right verdict today."
Lee was found guilty of four of the six counts he faced, including first degree intentional homicide with a dangerous weapon. 
"To have the jury come back with the verdicts they did, I think helps send the message that we didn't have the wrong guy," said District Attorney Carrie Schneider.
After 10 days in court, hugs and smiles filled the Outagamie County Justice Center.
"They cry, I cry," Schneider said. "It's hard not to when you spend as many hours with these families as you do when it's something that's so emotional for them."
Lee's bond has been revoked. Sentencing will take place at a later date. He faces life in prison.
