A 27-year-old Texas man is under arrest, charged with strangling his college-student ex-girlfriend, cutting up her body and burning it on a grill
Investigators in Houston said Timothy Shepherd has confessed, telling them he did it because Tynesha Stewart had begun a new relationship. Shepherd is being held on $250,000 bond.
Stewart was a freshman at Texas A&M and was last seen with Shepherd March 15 while home in Houston on spring break.
An announcement Thursday that authorities would not be searching for the body parts triggered outrage among Stewart's family and friends. But the sheriff said the suspect burned them and that, "There are no remaining body parts."
