Va. police: suspect in abduction due back Saturday

The Associated Press

CHARLOTTESVILLE, Va. (AP) Police in Virginia say they expect the suspect in the abduction of a missing 18-year-old college student to be returned from Texas over the weekend.

Charlottesville Police Capt. Gary Pleasants says officers are in Galveston, Texas, Friday to return Jesse Leroy Matthew Jr. to either Richmond or Charlottesville by Saturday.

Matthew was arrested on a beach in Texas on Wednesday on a charge of abduction with intent to defile.

Charlottesville police say the 32-year-old Matthew is the last person to be seen with University of Virginia student Hannah Graham two weeks ago. She remains missing.

Charlottesville officials say they don't expect Matthew to make a court appearance before Thursday because of a judicial conference in the city.
