The punishment phase continues tomorrow for the man convicted in the murder of Aggie Tynesha Stewart last year. At most, Timothy Shepherd can receive life in prison.
He was found guilty on Thursday for killing his ex-girlfriend.
Investigators say Shepherd confessed to strangling Stewart, cutting up her body and burning the remains on a grill.
A piece of a tooth with Stewart's DNA was found in the garbage disposal in Shepherd's after his March 2007 arrest.
Stewart's mom says it's possible to forgive people, but they still must pay for what they have done.
