Defense Warns Jury About DNA Evidence in Jesse Matthew Trial


FAIRFAX, Va. — Jun 8, 2015, 3:22 PM ET
By MATTHEW BARAKAT Associated Press

~snipped~
Defense lawyers urged jurors to be cautious in evaluating DNA evidence linking their client, Jesse Matthew, to a brutal attack in 2005 on a woman in Fairfax.

Matthew's trial in the Fairfax case began Monday. He also is charged with the abduction and death last year of University of Virginia student Hannah Graham.

During opening statements, prosecutor Ray Morrogh said a struggle between Matthew and the victim produced the DNA evidence that links Matthew to the crime.

But public defender Robert Frank warned jurors that DNA sometimes is transferred from one person to another inadvertently.

Matthew is charged in Fairfax with attempted capital murder, abduction and sexual assault in connection with a 2005 attack on a woman walking home from the supermarket. He's pleaded not guilty.

Woman avoids making eye contact in court with Jesse Matthew

Posted 10:11 pm, June 4, 2015, by Laura French
~snipped~
FAIRFAX, Va. — Jesse Matthew’s attempted capital murder and sexual assault trial will move forward Monday in Fairfax.

Fairfax County Circuit Court Judge David Schell denied a defense motion to continue the June 8 trial.

For the first time in 10 years, the alleged victim in the September 24, 2005 sexual assault, known as “RG,” was in the presence of her alleged attacker when she took the stand to testify.

The defense called her in a motion to suppress any court identification of Matthew. Judge Schell denied that motion.

RG was asked several questions by the defense about her conversations with the state over the past 10 years, and most recently after Matthew was arrested and charged with the murder of University of Virginia second year, Hannah Graham.

DNA connects Matthew to the 2005 attack in Fairfax, Hannah Graham’s 2014 case, and Virginia Tech student Morgan Harrington when she disappeared in 2009 night from UVa’s John Paul Jones Arena and was later found murdered.

RG testified that the state informed her of Matthew’s arrest and the media interest in the case, but never showed her pictures of Matthew. RG stated out of her own “curiosity,” she searched Matthew’s photo online in October. She noted that his hair had changed, but his face was the same.

RG was not present at the start of Thursday’s 3 p.m. hearings. She arrived in Fairfax from India at 1 p.m. with her small children and was sleeping at a hotel when the judge ordered the prosecution to pick her up to testify. The prosecution had to awaken her and transport her to court, despite a request from Fairfax County Commonwealth’s Attorney Ray Morrogh to continue the hearing Friday to allow her to rest and take care of her children...

...The prosecution made reference to interviews done with some of Matthew’s friends that placed him in Fairfax September 24, 2005, the night of the attack. RG was walking home from The Giant grocery store on Germantown Road in Fairfax when prosecutors say Matthew dragged her into a grassy area and assaulted her near her townhouse.

Judge Schell granted a defense motion that will prevent the Commonwealth from introducing Matthew’s criminal history at trial and denied a defense motion prohibiting the media from attending Thursday’s motion to suppress hearing...

UPDATE: In opening statements, prosecution describes sexual assault
The jury was seated in Jesse Matthew sexual assault case in Fairfax

Nadine Maeser, nmaeser@wdbj7.com

POSTED: 08:20 AM EDT Jun 08, 2015    UPDATED: 03:21 PM EDT Jun 08, 2015

~snipped~

The prosecution just finished its opening statements

Here is a recap:

(Note: The person prosecutors say Jesse Matthew sexually assaulted is being referred to as "RG." WDBJ7 does not report the names of sex crime victims)

* RG was reportedly thrown on the ground

* RG now lives in India

* RG was in the Fairfax area, she had just graduated

* RG was a virgin at the time, not married

* RG had no car, no drivers license and was living in a home that allowed her to walk places

* RG is described as a very quiet and kind person

* She is very hesitant to speak about some things due to cultural preference

* Day of the crime was Saturday, Sept 24, 2005

* RG hung around her house and did some chores, but later in the afternoon she wanted to go up to Borders to read, she got caught up in reading and lost track of time

* It was dark outside and thought she should head home

* She was walking close to Giant (near Jermantown Rd.), so she decided to get groceries.

* Prosecutors say she walked about a half a mile and she was approached by a total stranger

* The person was disoriented, asking her questions, she started walking and quickened her pace

* As RG walked to her house and got to her walkway, she heard footsteps

* The attacker picked her up, dropped her once, dragging her, began beating her, slammed her face in the ground, pulled her pants and underwear off and began to assault her

* RG fought hard back against her attacker. She poked and scratched him and he in turn beat her, threatened to kill her, choked her until she lost consciousness

Here is a recap of the defense's opening statements:

- Defense says there was no one to match DNA profile in 2005.

- The defense says "RG" was only able to give a general description of her attacker. The defense says the 2005 sketch does not match Matthew. (Click here to see the sketch.)

Jury chosen in rape trial of suspect in Virginia student's murder

Reuters
By Lacey Johnson
1 hour ago

~snipped~
A jury was chosen on Monday for the rape trial of a Virginia man also charged with the high-profile murder of college student Hannah Graham.

Jesse Matthew Jr., 33, of Charlottesville, is charged with attacking a woman in Fairfax, a Washington suburb, in 2005.

A jury of seven men and seven women, including two alternates, was chosen in Fairfax County Circuit Court after nearly three hours of selection. Opening arguments could take place later on Monday.

Matthew, a former hospital worker, appeared wearing a dreadlocked ponytail, beige dress shirt and slacks. He is accused of grabbing a 26-year-old woman walking home from a grocery store, dragging her into nearby woods and sexually assaulting her.

When asked by Judge David Schell if he was prepared for trial, Matthew said, "No."

RG says her attacker was straddling her during the attack. She says she doesn't remember when her attacker moved off of her.

RG tells defense one of her shoes came off during the struggle with Matthew.

RG says her attacker told her to let him sexually assault her. If she didn't, her attacker said he would kill her.

RG has been on the stand for about an hour now, recapping what she says happened in September 2005. Defense is still asking her questions.

RG says she was interview by a few officers. One showed up to her home in Fairfax. RG says she can't remember the name of the officer.

Defense is questioning Fairfax City Police Lt. right now about when he responded to the call. #JesseMatthew

Lt. says he radioed out description of attacker. Black male, 6 feet, light colored jeans, black shirt, medium build.

CW calls Mary Lamb Williams. She is the nurse who saw RG shortly after the sexual assault

Fairfax City PD Lt. is finished testifying. He responded to the scene of the attack. Mary Lamb Willams is on the... http://fb.me/3QNd29iI2

Nurse says she does not "have a current recollection" of this incident because it was so long ago

CW is handing off pictures of RG after the attack. She has swollen face, nose and some blood on her

Nurse says the pictures "appear" to be a fair and accurate depiction of RG after the attack

Defense is upset with wording of nurse's testimony because she can't remember her exam from nearly 10 years ago

Defense objects three times to Judge Schell. He sustains 3 times.

NURSE: RG "Asking questions, tearful" during exam. Hand had redness, Knee had redness. Scratches. Red areas on neck. Chin area had abrasion

Nurse says RG had multiple injuries from the sexual assault.

Nurse in #JesseMatthew is talking in detail about the injuries to RG from the sexual assault right now

Nurse talking about the PERK, Personal Evidence Recovery Kit, in this case. Includes swabs, samples

Nurse collected pubic hair, DNA, swabs, smears, fingernail clippings, fingernail scrapings, clothing from RG

NURSE: Fingernail scrapings means you scrape underneath the nail. Also clipped RG's nails and put into evidence bags.

Nurse is putting on gloves right now. She is opening the kit and will identify the contents for the jurors, courtroom.

More people have trickled into the #JesseMatthew trial. Most seats are taken at this point

Nurse testifies the evidence collected from RG was sealed. #JesseMatthew

#JesseMatthew jurors are watching as the nurse goes through each item in the kit. She is explaining what is in the evidence bags

Nurse: Took blue jeans, grey sweatshirt, red shirt, socks, white bra from victim. RG was not wearing underway when she got to the nurse

Defense is going through a number of names asking if Det. Boone remembers them being suspects b/c they fit the general description

Here is a recap of the biggest things to come out of day #2 so far in the #JesseMatthew trial. WDBJ7 http://fb.me/7oGr5cVj9

Detective says he compiled a list of "persons of interest" based on his time with the PD and tips from other officers

Defense is still going through folders, saying names to Det. Boone asking if he recalls anyone

#JesseMatthew Defense just pulled out another folder and is reading off more names to the lead detective

Detective says RG moved away one year after the attack. They kept in touch by email in the years after

CW is now questioning lead detective again. Talking about how long it has been since an arrest was made.

CW talking about 2005 sketch. Detective says he did not request the beard be removed for it. #JesseMatthew

Detective says RG was always consistent that there was only one attacker. RG told investigators she scratched her attacker.

Det. Boone say the fingernail scrapings would help investigators ID the attacker because RG told them she scratched them

Victim testifies Jesse Matthew said, ‘I will kill you if you scream again’

By Justin Jouvenal and T. Rees Shapiro June 8

The woman testified she was just three or four steps from the safety of her Fairfax City home when the nightmare began. She heard footsteps from behind, and the powerful man lifted her off the ground “like a baby.”

She screamed in terror as he dragged her to a grassy patch just feet from surrounding homes. The attacker beat her, laced his fingers around her neck and then began sexually assaulting her as she fought back.

“He said, ‘I will kill you if you scream again,’ ” the victim told a hushed Fairfax County courtroom Monday. “He said, ‘Let me do this, and I’ll let you go.’ ”

UPDATE: Woman Testifies Details of 2005 Sexual Assault in Matthew Case (Videos)

Posted: Jun 08, 2015 5:14 AM CDT

Fairfax, VA - A woman's account took center stage in the Fairfax County trial against Jesse Matthew.

The alleged victim in the Fairfax case was flown back from India to testify against him. The woman, emotional during her testimony, says he picked her up, took her to the bushes, slammed her head against the ground, before the assault, according to WRIC. A bystander reportedly intervened leading to her escape. She answered questions from prosecutors and the defense.

~Snipped~

FAIRFAX, Va. (AP) -- Prosecutors say a woman attacked in 2005 "fought like the dickens" to fend off a brutal attack by the same man charged with the abduction and death last year of University of Virginia student Hannah Graham.

The woman has told jurors how she struggled to fight off the man who tried to rape her nearly a decade ago.
 
During opening statements Monday at the trial of 33-year-old Jesse Matthew, prosecutor Ray Morrogh said that struggle produced the DNA evidence that links Matthew to the crime.

Forensics expert: DNA under victim’s nail in Matthew case from one man

By Justin Jouvenal and T. Rees Shapiro June 9 at 7:46 PM



A forensic analyst testified in Fairfax County Circuit Court on Tuesday that DNA found underneath a fingernail of the victim of a vicious 2005 sexual assault in Fairfax City came from one man.

The expert testimony came on the second day of trial proceedings against Jesse L. Matthew Jr., 33, who if convicted of the charges against him faces the possibility of three life sentences.

The assault left a young woman battered and slathered in blood.

Police Investigated 40 People of Interest in Virginia Attack

June 9, 2015 6:59 PM

FAIRFAX, Va. — Police investigated more than 40 people of interest before their nine-year search for the man who brutally attacked a woman in 2005 led them to Jesse Matthew, a detective testified Tuesday.

Matthew, 33, of Charlottesville, is on trial in Fairfax for attempted murder and sexual assault on a woman. He is also charged in a separate case with capital murder in the abduction and death last year of University of Virginia student Hannah Graham. The cases are linked by DNA evidence.

Defense attorneys cross-examined the lead detective in the Fairfax case about other suspects and people whose names showed up in the detective’s investigative file.

Jesse Matthew trial: Good Samaritan recalls efforts that saved woman's life 10 years ago

By Jay Korff  June 9, 2015 - 10:17 pm
Updated: June 10, 2015 - 06:01 am




FAIRFAX, Va. (WJLA) - Mark Castro said he did what anyone else would have done. But what he did nearly 10 years ago may have saved a life according to authorities.

Castro testified in court Monday, June 8 in the Jesse Matthew criminal case. Tuesday he talked publicly for the first time to ABC7 News about what happened a decade ago.

Authorities allege Matthew sexually assaulted and savagely beat a young woman in a wooded area near a Fairfax City townhouse complex back in 2005. Castro said he was a passer-by visiting a friend in that complex that night. He said when he got out of his car to park he heard something disturbing.

Castro said, “I heard someone faintly screaming out help. And when I went to look at them and talk to them this lady, this girl, she was screaming at the top of her voice but hardly anything was coming out.”

The woman was standing up but could barely move, Castro said, she was covered in mud and blood.

#‎JesseMatthew‬ followers! Some of you have asked me how much time he could serve, if he is convicted of these crimes. He is facing 3 life sentences for this 2005 rape case. I've got about an hour before court, so keep those questions coming if you have them and have a great Wednesday!

CW: "He left because someone showed up." RG was abducted and we know what his intent was. @WDBJ7

CW: RG was picked up like a baby. CW says he did that to isolate her so he could accomplish his goals to molest and kill her. #JesseMatthew

CW submits all three charges be submitted. Defense is addressing a few more things right now. #JesseMatthew

JUDGE SCHELL: The CW has presented evidence appropriate for the jury to consider. No failure to address any element in the 3 charges. @WDBJ7

JUDGE SCHELL: Motion to strike is DENIED. #JesseMatthew
