A Monroe County, Pennsylvania, jury found a man accused of kidnapping and murdering his coworker in 2013 guilty on nearly all charges. 

The jury found Michael Horvath guilty on charges of homicide, kidnapping, tampering with evidence and abuse of a corpse nine years after Holly Grim’s disappearance, FOX affiliate WOLF-TV reported. 

Horvath was acquitted of obstruction of law enforcement. 

“I’m happy that we got some justice for the Grim family,” Zachary Grim, Holly Grim’s son, told reporters Friday, according to WFMZ. “I’m not sure if I can move on, but we are all going to try.”

Grim, who was 41 at the time of her death and worked with Horvath at a church organ manufacturing company, went missing from the Red Maples Mobile Home Park in Lower Macungie Township in November 2013, according to the Pennsylvania State Police

Prosecutors said Horvath stalked Grim before kidnapping her from her home and killing her, WFMZ reported.

He eventually buried her body on his land, but authorities did not discover her remains until three years later in 2016, when a bone discovered on his property matched Grim’s DNA.
