Morgan Harrington

The governor has signed legislation expanding the state’s criminal data base – requiring that blood, saliva or tissue samples be taken from anyone convicted of two serious misdemeanors.


There will be no trial for Jesse Matthew Jr., the man who kidnapped and killed Virginia Tech student Morgan Harrington and UVA student Hannah Graham.  Instead, the 34-year-old pleaded guilty and was spared the death penalty.  Still, the victims’ parents had their day in court.  Sandy Hausman was there and filed this report.
