FILE - This is a Wednesday, Sept. 7, 2011 file booking photo provided by Hayward Police Department of Michelle Le's former friend Giselle Esteban, taken in Hayward, Calif. Officials have determined that badly decomposed human remains discovered over the weekend in a California canyon are those of Michelle Le, the missing nursing student who disappeared in May while taking a school break. Esteban knew Le in high school in San Diego and was arrested earlier this month and charged with murder. Photo: AP / SFGiselle Esteban, 28 (pictured) showed no emotion after an Oakland jury today convicted her of first-degree murder for stalking and killing nursing student Michelle Le, 26—her former high school friend—in 2011. She could face 25 years to life in prison when sentenced Dec. 10. Le’s disappearance from Kaiser Permanente Medical Center in Hayward May 27, 2011, generated widespread headlines. Her skeletal remains were found three months later in Sunol Canyon east of Fremont. Chronicle
