ASHBURN, GA (WALB) - A man found guilty of a 1997 Turner County murder will spend life in prison.

Forty-year-old Jeffery Lynn Speck was convicted Thursday of killing 32-year-old Michaela Swainey. She was stabbed to death and her body was dumped along I-75.

Her murder remained unsolved until Speck's DNA showed up in a national database in 2005.

Speck was serving time in Texas on drug charges and was returned to Turner County earlier this year.
