TULSA, Okla. (AP) - A 25-year-old man has been found guilty in the strangulation death of his girlfriend in Tulsa.

The Tulsa World (https://bit.ly/1PD44yG ) reports Brian Harris was convicted Thursday in the death of Ashley Brizendine. Jurors recommended a life sentence.

According to prosecutors, emergency responders found Brizendine unresponsive on the living room floor on July 12, 2013, and pronounced her dead within half an hour. Prosecutors say Harris grabbed Brizendine by the throat following an argument.

Harris’ sentencing hearing is scheduled for Tuesday.
