An Ole Miss student implicated of killing his 21- year-old schoolmate was prosecuted Friday on a capital murder charge.
A Lafayette County, Mississippi, grand jury declares Brandon Theesfeld, 22, shot and eliminated Alexandria “Ally” Kostial while kidnapping her, according to the indictment filed Friday.
Kostial, a St. Louis native studying marketing at Ole Miss, was on campus for summer season school when she was eliminated in July.
Theesfeld was detained days after Kostial’s body was discovered in Harmontown, Mississippi, which is several miles from the Oxford campus.
Theesfeld was suspended from Ole Miss after his arrest.
A motive has not been released, and Theesfeld’s lawyers said he will get in an innocent plea.
At a bond hearing recently, Theesfeld’s defense lawyers withdrew their ask for bond and asked for that Theesfeld undergo a mental examination at a state hospital.
