JACKSONVILLE, Fla. -- A man who allegedly had the blood of a 2012 murder victim on his shoes was convicted Thursday.

Fifty-year-old Dennis Thurnado Glover was found guilty of First Degree Murder in the death of Sandra Allen, 51, according to a release from the State Attorney's Office.

Glover allegedly told his girlfriend he heard screams coming from Allen's house two doors down and said he was going to check on her.

Later, Allen was found to be fatally strangled and stabbed. Investigators then found blood on Glover's shoes to be a DNA match for Allen's.

On Dec. 19, a jury will decide if Glover should face the death penalty. Judge Mallory Cooper will make the final decision, according to the release.
