MOBILE, Alabama (AP) -- A jury has recommended the death sentence for serial killing suspect Jeremy Jones.

Jones -- a 32-year-old Oklahoma native -- has been convicted on all four capital murder counts for the 2004 rape and shooting death of an Alabama woman.

The jury recommended the death sentence in a 10-to-2 vote Thursday.

Sentencing is set for December 1st.

Jones was found guilty of rape, burglary, sexual abuse and kidnapping in the course of capital murder.

Forty-four-year-old Lisa Marie Nichols was found slain in her mobile home last September.

Murder charges have also been filed against Jones in New Orleans and Georgia in separate killings.
