at the bottom end for murder two, but only with good behavior, only if the warden wanted it to happen

Adrian’s fingers tightened on the metal. Thirteen years was at the bottom end for murder two, but only with good behavior, only if the warden wanted it to happen. “They’ll be watching me. You know that.”

what does the highlighted mean?

It means Adrian squeezed the trigger, knowing he would receive a (sentence of)  imprisonment from the judge. He might be released in 13 years if he behaved himself whilst in prison, but only if he was lucky enough to have a prison guard who was lenient.

I need more context, perhaps the paragraph before to know what squeezing the metal was (was it definitely a gun?)  The highighted part is clearly his thoughts about what kind of sentence he coud get or what his current future might be if he is already in jail.
