Bench Warrant Issued for Jesse Matthew
FAIRFAX, Va. (AP) - A judge in Fairfax County has issued a bench warrant to bring the man accused of abducting a missing University of Virginia student to Fairfax to face charges in a separate crime.
Fairfax County prosecutors sought and received the bench warrant Thursday for Jesse Matthew. He's charged with attempted capital murder and other charges in a 2005 sexual assault in Fairfax City.
Matthew is currently being held in the Charlottesville area on charges of kidnapping University of Virginia student Hannah Graham. Officers searching for Graham found human remains on Saturday. The remains have not yet been identified.
It's not clear when Matthew will make an initial appearance in Fairfax. Fairfax County Commonwealth's Attorney Ray Morrogh has indicated he will cooperate with prosecutors in the Graham case.
