The man charged with murdering a Charlottesville teacher and her daughter is trial bound.

Monday, a grand jury indicted 30-year-old Gene Everett Washington on two counts of murder for the deaths of Robin and Mani Aldridge.

The 58-year-old school teacher and her 17-year-old daughter were found dead inside their Rugby Avenue home last December.

Investigators say they were beaten to death before the home was set on fire.

Police have said that Mani Aldridge knew Washington, but wouldn't elaborate on how.

A ten day jury trial is scheduled to start September 28.
