The family of an Aggie brutally murdered last year finally has closure.

Thursday a Harris County jury found Timothy Shepherd guilty of killing his ex-girlfriend, Tynesha Stewart.

Shepherd was convicted of strangling Stewart at his apartment, dismembering her body, burning her remains on his patio grill and throwing them in a dumpster.
Stewart's body was never found.

She was a Freshman at A&M, home on spring break when the murder occurred.

Shepherd could face up to life in prison for the crime.
