Fourth suspect gets life in 2012 Macon murder

Dozier will go to trial in connection with the killing of Gail Spencer, a Macon legal secretary.

The man who served as the lookout for the murder of a Macon legal secretary three years ago will serve life without parole.

A Bibb County jury yesterday convicted Keith Dozier of malice murder, three counts of felony murder, aggravated assault, false imprisonment and theft by taking.

In October 2012, Dozier and three others tried to embezzle money from Macon attorney Calder Pinkston by wiring money from his account to theirs. They killed his secretary, Gale Spencer, when she refused to cooperate.

The other three, Tracy Michelle Jones, Michael Brett Kelly and Courtney Nicole Kelly, have all pleaded guilty and been sentenced.

But District Attorney David Cooke says Dozier's case went to trial this week after he refused a plea deal that offered possible parole

The jury deliberated for about three hours Thursday before finding him guilty. Then Judge Tripp Self sentenced to life without parole, plus 20 years.
