CHARLOTTESVILLE, Va. - As the Charlottesville community remembers the legacy of 18-year-old Hannah Graham, the man charged with abducting her, Jesse Matthew Jr. remains behind bars.

According to our Charlottesville affiliate, the Albemarle County Commonwealth's Attorney said there could be more charges coming now that Graham's remains have been positively identified.

"They're going to be looking at every phone statement, they're going to be looking at cell towers, pings on his phone," said CBS 6 Legal Analyst, Todd Stone.

Matthew was indicted earlier this week in connection with a 2005 rape in Fairfax. A judge issued a warrant to transfer Matthew to Northern Virginia.

"I expect Fairfax will go forward first and prosecute that case and give Charlottesville, Albemarle time to work up a circumstantial capitol murder case," said Stone.

Nearly ten years ago Matthew lived on Ponderosa Trail off Old Lynchburg Rd. with his mother. The area is only five miles from where Graham was found.

A neighbor who lived near Matthew and his mother is shocked by all the new recent developments.

"You don't know really what to think because like I said, they were my neighbors so you kind of hope that it's not that way but you never know what's inside a person's mind," said the neighbor.
