Jesse Matthew, suspect in Virginia abduction, indicted for 2005 sexual assault

Jesse Matthew, the man suspected of abducting and killing University of Virginia student Hannah Graham, has been indicted on charges stemming from a separate 2005 sexual assault.

Prosecutors in Fairfax County on Monday said they had indicted Matthew for attempted murder, abduction, and "sexual penetration with an object" in the 2005 case. In that incident, an assailant pulled a woman into the woods and sexually assaulted her before being scared away by another person. Investigators had previously said they believed evidence could link Matthew to other unsolved sexual assaults in the state.

The indictment comes days after investigators uncovered human remains they believe are Graham's.
