MANHATTAN, Kan. (AP) -- A Riley County jury has recommended life in prison for a former northeast Kansas man convicted of killing his girlfriend and their son.

Luis Aguirre was convicted last month of capital murder in the suffocation deaths of 18-year-old Tanya Maldonado and the couple's 13-month-old son, Juan. The deaths occurred in September 2009 at Aguirre's Ogden home. The bodies were found the next month near Ogden.

Prosecutors had been seeking the death penalty for Aguirre.

The jury heard prosecution and defense testimony this week and deliberated about four and a half hours Thursday before recommending that Aguirre serve life in prison with the possibility of parole.

A judge will formally sentence Aguirre on Aug. 7.
