NORMAN — A jury convicted a man of first-degree felony murder in the death of an Oklahoma Highway Patrol lieutenant after two troopers’ cruisers collided at a partial roadblock and one struck Heath Meyer — who was on foot.

After less than 2 1/2 hours of deliberation Monday, the 12-person panel recommended D’angelo Burgess serve life with a possibility of parole. Prosecutors had asked jurors to recommend life imprisonment without a chance for parole.

The 28-year-old Oklahoma City man also was convicted of attempting to elude law enforcement and recommended for the maximum five-year sentence on that count. He was acquitted of possession of marijuana and possession of drug paraphernalia.
