HANOVER, Va. (AP) - A Goochland County man has been convicted of killing his girlfriend at her home last year.

The Richmond Times-Dispatch reports (https://bit.ly/2edRv0b) 39-year-old Lamare Shiron Jennings was found guilty Wednesday of first-degree murder in the death of 44-year-old Leaudrey Salmon.

Hanover County prosecutor Mackenzie Babichenko says Jennings strangled and repeatedly slit Salmon’s throat with a knife last June inside her Rockville home. Babichenko says Jennings planned the slaying out of jealousy after a 911 recording captured Jennings expressing anger over his belief that Salmon had become romantically involved with another man.

During the call, Salmon begged for her life while Jennings gave her demands and tortured her. He was arrested days later.

A jury recommended Jennings be sentenced to life in prison. His formal sentencing is set for Jan. 9.
