CHARLOTTESVILLE, Va. (AP) - A June trial has been set for a man charged with abducting and killing a University of Virginia student.

Jesse Matthew Jr. watched by video link Wednesday as Albemarle County Circuit Judge Cheryl Higgins scheduled his three-week jury trial to start June 29. It was Matthew's first hearing since being indicted on a first-degree murder charge earlier this month. Matthew also is also charged with abduction with intent to defile, or sexually assault, 18-year-old Hannah Graham.

Graham disappeared after a night out with friends last September. Her remains were found in a rural area five weeks later.

Authorities say forensic evidence also has linked Matthew to their investigation of the 2009 disappearance and death of Virginia Tech student Morgan Harrington. Matthew has not been charged in that case.
