Jesse Matthew, the so-called "UVA Killer," pleaded guilty Wednesday to abducting and murdering two Virginia college students.
Eighteen-year old Hannah Graham went missing in September 2014. Her remains were found a month later on an abandoned property. Matthew was charged with her murder about five months later. That case connected him to a second murder. Twenty-year-old Morgan Harrington disappeared in October 2009 and her remains were found months later.
As part of the agreement, Matthew avoids the death penalty. Instead, he will serve four consecutive life sentences.
