A jury in Monroe County, Pennsylvania has convicted a man of kidnapping and murdering his colleague in 2013 on almost all charges.
Nine years after Holly Grimm’s disappearance, a jury found Michael Horvath guilty of murder, kidnapping, tampering with evidence and misusing a corpse, Fox affiliate WOLF-TV reported.
Horvath was acquitted for obstructing law enforcement.
According to WFMZ, Holly Grimm’s son, Zachary Grimm, told reporters on Friday: “I’m glad the Grimm family got justice. “I’m not sure if I can move on, but we’re all going to try.”
Grimm, who was 41 at the time of her death and was working with Horvath at a church organ manufacturing company, went missing from Red Maples Mobile Home Park in Lower McKinney Township in November 2013, according to Pennsylvania State Police.

According to WFMZ, prosecutors say Horvath abducted Grimm from her home and chased her before killing her.
He eventually buried her body on his land, but three years later, authorities did not find her remains in 2016, when the bones found on his property matched Grimm’s DNA.
Horvath’s sentencing hearing is set for September.
The Monroe County District Attorney’s Office did not immediately respond to a request for comment from Fox News Digital.
