Hi, from Charlottesville. Jesse Matthew will be arraigned at 1:30 for the murder of Morgan Harrington. He was indicted Monday by an Albemarle County grand jury for first degree murder and abduction with intent to defile. Each carries a maximum sentence of life in prison.
We may learn today whether Matthew will be tried in the Harrington case before his capital murder trial in the death of Hannah Graham.
The Graham trial is set to begin in July 2016. Unless his lawyers ask for a delay, he'd likely be tried before that for Morgan Harrington's murder.
Phones aren't allowed in the Albemarle courtroom, so I'll tweet a bunch when the hearing is over.
Before then, we'll likely see the Harrington and Matthew families arrivals.

Today's arraignment is in a tiny courtroom. I'm heading in now to make sure to get a seat.
