FAIRFAX, Va. (AP) - The suspect in the abduction of University of Virginia student Hannah Graham will be making an initial court appearance Friday in Fairfax in an unrelated case.

Fairfax County prosecutor Ray Morrogh said Monday that 32-year-old Jesse Matthew will appear in court via video link from a jail in the Charlottesville area, where he is currently being held.

Matthew was indicted last week in Fairfax on attempted capital murder and other charges for a 2005 sexual assault in Fairfax City. Authorities have said they have forensic links between the 2005 case, Graham’s abduction, and the 2009 disappearance and death of Virginia Tech student Morgan Harrington.

Graham’s remains were found Oct. 18 in Albemarle County after a monthlong search, but Matthew has thus far been charged only with abducting Graham.
