BURLINGTON, Ky. (AP) - A jury in northern Kentucky has recommended life in prison for a former Burlington custodian convicted of murder.

The Kentucky Enquirer (https://cin.ci/1soYkz9 ) reports that David Dooley was found guilty Thursday of the 2012 murder of his former co-worker Michelle Mockbee. Dooley was also found guilty of tampering with evidence, but not guilty of kidnapping.

The jury made its sentence recommendation on Friday. A judge still has to confirm the recommendation.

Mockbee’s body was found near the office area of Thermo Fisher Scientific, a laboratory equipment distributor in Boone County, in May 2012. Police say Dooley performed janitorial services at the company.

Mockbee had worked at Thermo Fisher for 16 years.
