OXFORD, Miss. (WJTV) – A former Ole Miss student is expected to plead guilty for allegedly killing his classmate Alexandria “Ally” Kostial in 2019.

Attorney Tony Farese, who represents Brandon Theesfeld, confirmed the change in an agreement between his client and the State of Mississippi.

There will be a hearing at 10:00 a.m. on Friday, August 27 at the Lafayette County Courthouse.

Investigators found Kostial’s body on July 20, 2019, in Harmontown near the Buford Ridge area. Two days later, Theesfeld was arrested at a gas station in South Memphis.

In August 2019, a Lafayette County Grand Jury indicted Theesfeld on a capital murder charge. According to a preliminary autopsy report, Kostial died from multiple gunshot wounds.
