It was a gruesome murder that rocked the Aggie community.
Now closure could be on the horizon.

Jury selection began today for the man accused of killing Texas A&M freshman, Tynesha Stewart.
28 year old Timothy Wayne Shepherd is accused of strangling and dismembering Stewart, who was his ex-girlfriend, then burning her remains.

According to police, Shepherd put part of the remains in a dumpster.
Investigators said Shepherd admitted to killing Stewart because he was angry she had begun a new relationship.
The big question, experts say, is whether jurors need a body to convict the 28 year old Houston man.
