CHARLOTTESVILLE, Va. – The man charged with abducting a missing University of Virginia student is due in court on reckless driving charges.
Jesse Leroy Matthew Jr.'s bond hearing on the misdemeanor charges is set for Thursday morning in Albemarle County General District Court.
Matthew also is charged with abduction with intent to defile 18-year-old Hannah Graham. His bond hearing on that felony count had been set for Thursday in Charlottesville General District Court, but it was postponed until Dec. 4. Defense attorney James Camblos said he asked for the postponement but declined further comment.
The 32-year-old Matthew is being held in the local jail without bond.
Authorities say he was charged with reckless driving after speeding away from a police station on Sept. 20. He was apprehended last week in Texas.
