Suspect back in Va. to Face Abduction Charges

Posted:
ALEXANDRIA, Va. (AP) - The man charged with abducting a missing University of Virginia student is back in Charlottesville after being arrested in Texas.
   
Capt. Aaron Carver of the Albermarle-Charlottesville Regional Jail confirmed Friday evening that the suspect is in custody there.
   
Authorities have charged 32-year-old Jesse Leroy Matthew Jr. with abduction with intent to defile Hannah Graham, an 18-year-old sophomore from northern Virginia who has been missing since Sept. 13.
   
Matthew was arrested on a beach near Galveston, Texas, on Wednesday. He did not fight extradition to Virginia, where he could make an initial court appearance late next week.
   
Police say they still have no idea about Graham's whereabouts. They have said Matthew was the last person seen with her.
