Springs man convicted of hatchet murder

Published On: Nov 15 2012 05:02:10 PM CST

A Colorado Springs man was convicted Thursday of soliciting the slaying of 20-year-old William Mickle in August 2011.

36-year-old Roger Julius Glover was found guilty of First Degree Murder.  Glover is convicted of ordering 19-year-old Jordan Rowland to kill Mickle with a hatchet.  Authorities caught Rowland with Mickle's severed finger in his pocket.  The coroner said Mickle suffered more than 20 chop wounds to his face.

Glover faces a mandatory sentence of life in prison.  His official sentencing date is set for December 6th.

Rowland also faces First Degree Murder charges.  A judge ruled in June that Rowland could temporarily withdraw his not guilty plea, pending Rowland's decision to deny the charge by reason of insanity.  A new trial date has not been set.
