JACKSONVILLE, Fla. -- On Friday afternoon, a jury voted to send Dennis Glover, 50, to death row for the murder of 51-year-old Sandra Allen.

Glover was convicted last week on one count of first degree murder for stabbing and strangling Allen to death in May 2012, according to a release from the State Attorney's Office.

Glover told his girlfriend that he heard screams coming from the victim's home, which according to police, was two doors down, and thought he should go check on the victim.

When police officials arrived, officers discovered Allen's body. Police later matched blood found on the defendant's shoes to the victim.
Glover's DNA was also on the victim in multiple locations.

Although the jury has recommended death, the final sentencing decision will be made by Judge Mallory Cooper.

The next court date in the penalty phase is set for February 10, 2014.
