CHARLOTTESVILLE, Va. – A grand jury has indicted a man already charged with killing a University of Virginia student with the homicide of a Virginia Tech student who disappeared in 2009.
The Albemarle County Commonwealth's Attorney Office said Tuesday that Jesse Leroy Matthew, Jr. has been charged with the first-degree murder of 20-year-old Morgan Harrington. Harrington vanished after attending a Metallica concert in Charlottesville. Matthew was also charged with abduction with intent to defile.
Matthew is charged with capital murder in the September 2014 disappearance and death of 18-year-old University of Virginia student Hannah Graham.
Authorities have previously said forensic evidence linked Matthew to Harrington.
In June, Matthew was convicted of sexually assaulting and attempting to kill a woman in Fairfax County. He is scheduled to be sentenced in that case Oct. 2.
