The man who killed Aggie Freshman Tynesha Stewart will spend 99 years behind bars.

The announcement for Timothy Shepherd came down around 4:30 this afternoon.
Jury members returned to the courtroom this afternoon demanding two things.
They asked for a read back of some of Shepherd's testimony, specifically his recount of how everything transpired.
They also want a playback of a phone call Shepherd placed from behind bars last December to a family member.

It was in that phone call that Shepherd stated "This case has garnered a lot of publicity so maybe I should write a book and make some money."
