Via Fox News:
FAIRFAX, Va. – Jesse Matthew Jr., charged with the murders of college students Hannah Graham and Morgan Harrington, was sentenced Friday to three life prison terms for a sexual assault on a woman a decade ago in northern Virginia. The Charlottesville, Virginia, man was sentenced in Fairfax, a suburb of the nation’s capital, for attempted capital murder and sexual assault of a woman in 2005. The judge at Friday’s packed sentencing hearing ordered the sentences to be served consecutively. DNA evidence collected from Matthew during last year’s investigation of Graham’s disappearance linked him to the Fairfax County case.
Last year, News2Share spoke to Leila Nasser, a friend of Graham’s.
Leila Nasser first met the late Hannah Graham at a French Emerson summer program. Graham is described by Nasser in the interview above. Nasser reacts to her death and reflects on her life, describing the type of person she remembers Hannah to be. Remains found in the investigation of her disappearance were confirmed today to be hers.
