STILLWATER — A 46-year-old man faces a life sentence without parole after a jury convicted him of murdering an Oakdale woman he had been dating.

The Washington County jury found Thomas Fox guilty at his first-degree murder trial Friday.

Thirty-nine-year-old Lori Baker was found stabbed to death in her apartment in December 2011. The pair reportedly had been dating for a few months.

Fox said in a recorded interview with police played at his trial that he did not kill Baker, he just found her body.

Prosecutors called his story a total fabrication.
