But the conviction was overturned by an appellate court.

A second trial was ordered in March 2016, with Mora reportedly confessing to killing his former girlfriend that October.

He provided authorities with a general location of Alonzo’s body but authorities weren’t able to find the remains at the time.

Mora was later sentenced to 11 years in state prison, according to the Alameda County District Attorney’s Office.

Alonzo’s family was able to give her a proper burial after not knowing where her body was for almost two decades.
