    An Albemarle County, Virginia, judge set a hearing for June 25 for Matthew, 33, the last person seen with Graham, 18, who disappeared after a night out with friends last September.

    FOX 5's Marina Marraco reports that forensic evidence found in February triggered the new indictment for capital murder, which was announced in court Tuesday afternoon.
    The judge also revealed that she has a child who attends the University of Virginia. She said she may be asked to recuse herself from the case. A motion to address that issue will be taken up on June 25.

    Meet The Woman who spotted Jesse Matthew on that beach in Texas:

    “It was a beautiful day blue skies white clouds sunshine,” Monk recalled. “I am sitting looking out at the water. Me and my dog eyes closed listening to music.”
    Her peace was disrupted when she noticed she had company on the beach. First she saw a tent, then a car. The car was headed right toward her.

    How kind of Gil to be involved. I talked to her some when she was on a radio show that I used to co-host. She is a very very sweet lady and my heart goes out to her. I wish I could ease their pain somehow!

    We'll just lift her up. To know, that this monster is responsible for your own child's murder and want to help another mother along, will help, I do believe in some sort of peace for her as well. To know, through DNA on Morgan's shirt.
    I truly hope that he does get the death penalty.

    That was an good interview - I can see how precarious it was in so many instances for him to eventually and thankfully get caught.
    Brave, determined and courageous - I'm glad she is being recognized for what she did.

    I am glad too, after reading it, I thought, I prolly woulda still called to get the police after no help from crime stoppers people but then to think of 0'ing out the odometer to know exactly how far! I don't know if I would have thought to do that.

    I wouldn't have thought to do that until now, after reading the article!

    I'm always afraid I wouldn't recognize a sketch. I was told that if we get used to side by sides, it makes it easier. That's why we put a couple of side by sides on our marquee. I'll be adding more in the future.

    Delay in Jesse Matthew's Fairfax Trial Denied by Judge

    A judge has denied a request by attorneys for Jesse Matthew Jr. to delay his attempted murder trial in Fairfax in a case dating back to 2005.
    Matthew is scheduled to go on trial June 8 in Fairfax in the earlier case. He is accused of attacking a 26-year-old woman as she walked home from a grocery store in the city of Fairfax in September 2005.

    The victim was dragged into a wooded area and sexually assaulted. Her attacker was interrupted by a passerby and then ran off.

    Matthew was indicted in October 2014 for attempted capital murder, abduction with attempt to defile, and sexual penetration with an object in that case. All three charges are felonies. He has pleaded not guilty.

    Matthew is also facing charges of capital murder, first-degree murder and abduction with intent to defile in the Graham case.

    Graham vanished in September 2014 after a night out with friends. Her remains were found about five weeks later.
