Giselle Esteban has been charged in the killing of nursing student Michelle Le who disappeared from the San Francisco Bay area on May 27th.

The two women were former high school classmates and were also connected in knowing the same man, which authorities believe, was the motive for the killing.  Esteban is said to have been jealous that Le knew the father of her 5-year-old daughter.  That man, Scott Marasigan, has confirmed that he has been a friend of Le for 9 years and was fearful of Esteban and asked for a restraining order three days before Le disappeared.

Le disappeared from work where video surveillance camera shows Esteban at Le’s work place before and after her disappearance.  Esteban was an early suspect and was arrested on September 7th on suspicion of murder.

This past Saturday searchers found human remains in Alameda County and today the coroner confirmed those were the remains of Le. 

Esteban who is seven month pregnant continues to deny she had anything to do with Le’s disappearance and murder.  In a court appearance on Monday she did not enter a plea.
