Authorites have now charged Jesse Matthew with first-degree murder in the death of 18-year-old University of Virginia student Hannah Graham.
"Specifically, Mr. Matthew was indicted for first-degree murder and abduction with the intent to defile occurring on or about Sept. 13, 2014. ... The next step in this process is that Mr. Matthew will have a first appearance in Albemarle Circuit Court," Commonwealth Attorney Denise Lunsford said at a press conference.
That appearance is scheduled for Feb. 18, when Matthew will be informed about his right to counsel and a new date will be scheduled. The prosecutor said he is not expected to appear in person.
