The suspect in the abduction of University of Virginia student Hannah Graham is being indicted in a 2005 sexual assault.
Jesse Matthew has been charged with attempted capital murder, abduction and sexual penetration with an object, according to the indictment from the Fairfax County Circuit Court.
The victim, who was 26 at the time, was identified only as "R.G." in court papers.
“(We’ve) been in touch with her regularly over the past eight or nine years,” Fairfax County Commonwealth’s attorney Raymond Morrogh said at a press conference this afternoon.
"The victim is grateful to the lead detective who kept in touch with her over the course of nine years and promised her he would never give up," Morrow said. He added, “I think it’s fair to say that i think she's grateful that the case will go forward."
