Union City woman convicted of murder in Michelle Le case

Giselle Esteban, 26, of Union City, was found guilty Monday of first-degree murder for killing nursing student Michelle Le. A jury of six women and six men deliberated for four days before finding Esteban guilty of killing Le in a Hayward parking garage.

Authorities described Esteban as being “obsessed” with the idea that her ex-boyfriend and Le were having a relationship. I know two people who lived in the same apartment complex as Esteban. Scary to think a convicted killer was living next to them the whole time.

Esteban now faces at least 25 years to life in prison when she is sentenced on Dec. 10. For more of Paul Rosynsky’s story on the conviction, click here.
