FAIRFAX COUNTY, Va (WRIC) — A judge in Fairfax County has denied a motion to delay the trial for Jesse Matthew.

Matthew, charged in the murder of Hannah Graham in Albemarle, is also charged with attempted capital murder in Fairfax. His defense team argued that they needed more time to prepare their defense in the case.

With today’s denial, the case will go to trial June 8.

Matthew is charged with capital murder in the death of UVA student Hannah Graham. The trial date for that case has not yet been set.
