BOONE COUNTY, KY (FOX19) -

Jurors in the case of David Dooley recommended Friday morning life in prison for murder, and five years for tampering with evidence.

The jury found Dooley guilty of murder and tampering in the death of Michelle Mockbee Thursday night.

He was found not guilty of kidnapping.

The jury in the high profile Northern Kentucky murder trial was in its second day of deliberations Thursday.

The jury asked that a video be played back as they worked to decide whether to convict Dooley, 38, in the murder of his co-worker Michelle Mockbee. The video was a 42-minute police interview with Dooley.

Mockbee was beaten to death inside Thermo Fisher Scientific in 2012. Dooley was a janitor there.

Prosecutors admit there was no physical evidence tying him to the murder, but say there were inconsistencies in his story.
