(BCN) Giselle Esteban, the woman convicted of murdering nursing student Michelle Le in May 2011, was sentenced in Alameda County Superior Court this  morning to 25 years to life in prison.

Michelle Le's family offered a reward for information on her whereabouts after she disappeared on May 27, 2011.

In her trial, prosecutors contended that Esteban killed Le, a  former friend and high school classmate, because she mistakenly believed that  Le was having a romantic relationship with Scott Marasigan, the father of  Esteban’s 6-year-old daughter.

Le, 26, was studying nursing at Samuel Merritt University in  Oakland. She disappeared from Kaiser Permanente Medical Center in Hayward on  May 27, 2011, and her body was found in a remote area between Pleasanton and Sunol about four months later.

Prosecutor Butch Ford alleged in the trial that Esteban, 28, had  planned Le’s murder for months and staked her out in the Kaiser parking lot for hours before attacking her as she walked to her car.

Esteban’s lawyer, Andrea Auer, admitted to jurors that Esteban  killed Le but had asked them to convict her of the lesser charge of voluntary  manslaughter because she said Le had provoked Esteban and Esteban acted in  the heat of passion.
