District Attorney Ben Creekmore confirmed the plea expectation on Tuesday. Defense attorney Tony Farese confirmed the scheduling for the plea hearing in Lafayette County Circuit Court.

Under the plea agreement, according to Farese, Theesfeld could be conditionally released at age 65.

Two years ago, Kostial’s body was found about 20 miles from the Ole Miss campus during a patrol of Buford’s Ridge fishing camp on Sardis Lake.

Upon the discovery of the body, it was revealed she was shot eight times.
