BRYAN, Texas (AP) — A man living near Austin must serve 50 years in prison for the 2016 fatal shooting of his girlfriend who attended Texas A&M University and was slain at her off-campus apartment.

Victor Manuel Garcia-Loyo of Del Valle was sentenced Wednesday in Bryan. Brazos County Assistant District Attorney Jessica Escue said Garcia-Loyo, 23, pleaded guilty to murder in a plea deal on Monday.

The case involves the September 2016 death of 21-year-old Maricarmen Quiroz-Octaviano, who was from Austin and a senior at Texas A&M. Authorities believe Garcia-Loyo shot his girlfriend during an argument in College Station.

Police later contacted Garcia-Loyo, tracked his cellphone and caught him in Fort Worth.

Escue said Garcia-Loyo was also held for immigration authorities and could face deportation. The prosecutor had no further details.
