SALT LAKE CITY — A former University of Utah employee has been convicted of kidnapping a woman at her home and raping her on campus.

The Salt Lake Tribune reports (http://bit.ly/1BzcJyt ) a jury on Friday found 51-year-old Lonnie Norton guilty of felony counts of aggravated sexual assault, kidnapping and burglary and misdemeanor counts of assault and violation of a protective order.

According to charging documents, Norton broke into the Sandy home of a woman he knew in November 2011, duct-taped her head and mouth and forced her into his vehicle at gunpoint.

He's accused of driving her to a building on the university campus and having sex with her there after threatening to kill her and himself.

Norton was director of College Computing for the College of Humanities at the time.
