Matthew's Defense Seeks to Suppress Fairfax Evidence
Jesse Matthew's attorney filed a motion Tuesday, claiming that the alleged victim in that case has undoubtedly seen coverage of Matthew's arrest.
Despite returning to her native India shortly after the alleged attack, the defense is claiming that the victim's ability to make a fair in-court identification has been tainted by images she may have seen of Matthew in media coverage online and on television.
For that reason, the defense filed a motion for the court to suppress identification of Matthew.
Last week a judge stopped a request for the trial to be delayed for a second time.
