CHARLOTTESVILLE, Va. -- Jesse Matthew is expected in Albemarle County Circuit Court, for a 12 noon pretrial hearing in the Hannah Graham murder case.
Very little is known about what topics will be argued, since defense attorneys and prosecutors have successfully requested many motions remain sealed until discussed in open court.
WTOP's Neal Augenstein will be in the courtroom. Bookmark this page for up-to-the-minute details.
Incoming prosecutor Robert Tracci sat down in second row, behind defense table. Jesse Matthew's sister and girlfriend sat in the same row, a few seats away. They didn't address each other -- they likely didn't know who each were. When defense attorneys Doug Ramseur and Michael Hemenway sat in front row, Tracci left the courtroom. Introduced myself to Tracci in hallway. He'll take over the case Jan 1, 2016, when he's sworn in.
