Life Without Parole for Natson

A federal jury has recommended life without parole for Michael Natson, convicted of killing Georgia Southern student Dena Carter--his girlfriend at the time--and her unborn child.

On Friday, that same jury convicted Natson of murder, feticide and murder using a firearm.

Carter went missing in September of 2003. Her remains were found by hunters on Fort Benning.

The jury didn't recommend the death penalty because they could not come to a unanimous decision on either murder count, and a feticide conviction isn't eligible for the death penalty.
