Court Date Set for Jesse Matthew's Fairfax Trial
This week, Matthew was also charged with first-degree murder in Albemarle County. The commonwealth's attorney says Matthew abducted and killed University of Virginia student Hannah Graham in September of 2014.
Matthew's Fairfax trial will start June 8, about three months after it was supposed to begin. His court-appointed defense team in Fairfax requested more time to review DNA test results from evidence in that case. The trial is slated for two weeks.
Matthew will be brought back to the Albemarle - Charlottesville Regional Jail ahead of a hearing set for Wednesday, February 18, in Albemarle Circuit Court. That hearing will establish counsel and set future hearings for the case.
