JACKSONVILLE, Fla. – A man who was arrested for killing his former neighbor was found guilty and sentenced to death Friday in the murder of 51-year-old Sandra Allen.

According to officials, in May 2012, 50-year-old Dennis Thurnado Glover was in his home with his girlfriend when he told her that he heard screams coming from Allen's home, which was two doors down, and thought that he should go check on her.

A short while later, police arrived at Allen's home and found her strangled and stabbed to death.

Through their investigation, police were able to match blood found on Glover's shoes to Allen and DNA from Glover was found on Allen in multiple locations.
