OAKLAND, Calif. (AP) - Prosecutors say a jury has convicted a woman of first-degree murder in the gruesome death of her former friend, San Francisco Bay area nursing student Michelle Le.

An Alameda County jury returned its verdict Monday against 28-year-old Giselle Esteban, who attended high school with Le.

Le went missing from a Hayward hospital parking lot in May of last year. Her remains were found after she had been missing for months.

Prosecutors said Esteban of Union City attacked Le in the parking garage of the hospital where she was doing a clinical rotation. According to grand jury testimony, Esteban had grown increasingly enraged at a friendship between the 26-year-old Le and Scott Marasigan, who has a young daughter with Esteban.

Esteban had entered a not-guilty plea to the murder charge.
