Suspect in the Hannah Graham & Morgan Harrington Case Jesse Matthew Pleads Not Guilty to the 2005 Sexual Assault of “RG” in Fairfax County, VA

Jesse Matthew, the suspect in Hannah Graham’s disappearance and the death of Morgan Harrington, appeared in court Friday to answer charges on another case of  abduction and sexual assault from 2005.  Jesse Matthew is facing three felony charges: attempted capital murder, abduction with intent to defile and sexual penetration with an object. Matthew’s plead “not guilty” to all three charges related to the September 2005 incident. The victim is only referred to as “RG”. Authorities state that on September 24, 2005, a 26 year-old woman was returning from a grocery store in the city of Fairfax when someone grabbed her from behind and sexually assaulted her. The victim was raped and beaten nearly to death and only spared because her attacker was scared off by a passer by.

At Friday’s court hearing, lawyers for the 32-year-old Matthew waived the hearing of the charges against him. But according to the indictment in the 2005 case, he “did feloniously, willfully, deliberately, intentionally and with premeditation attempt to kill (the victim) in the commission of or subsequent to an abduction with the intent to defile.”

The woman now lives in India and is prepared to fly to the United States to testify Commonwealth’s Attorney Ray Morrogh told reporters Friday.

The victim “RG” now lives in India; however, is ready to travel back to the United States and testify against her attacker in the upcoming trial, Fairfax County. Judge Dennis Smith set a trial date of March 9.

CNN:

While he awaits the next legal steps in the death of University of Virginia student Hannah Graham, Jesse Matthew appeared in court Friday to answer charges on another case — an alleged abduction, sexual assault and attempted murder from nearly a decade ago.

During a brief appearance at the Fairfax County Courthouse in northern Virginia, Matthew only uttered two words — “Not guilty” — to all three charges related to the September 2005 incident.

Judge Dennis Smith set a trial date of March 9. The trial is expected to last six or seven days.

Authorities say that on September 24, 2005, a 26-year-old woman was returning from a grocery store in the city of Fairfax when someone grabbed her from behind and sexually assaulted her.

Linkage of the three cases of Hannah Graham murder … Morgan Harrington murder and “RG” sexual assault and attempted murder

Linkage of the three crimes against victims: Hannah Graham, Morgan Harrington and “RG”.

Most recently, DNA recovered from underneath the fingernail of the sexual assault victim linked Matthew to the abduction of University of Virginia student, Hannah Graham.

Graham was last seen on Sept. 13 on surveillance video walking with Matthew in downtown Charlottesville. In October, remains found on an abandoned property on Old Lynchburg Road in Albemarle County were identified as those of Graham.

According to officials, forensic evidence linked to the Fairfax rape also links Matthew to the disappearance of Virginia Tech student Morgan Harrington.

Harrington was last seen leaving the John Paul Jones Arena in Charlottesville in 2009. Her remains were found in Albemarle County in January 2010. Harrington was from Roanoke County.

AC/DC Drummer Phil Rudd Arrested in New Zealand for Attempting to Arrange a Murder, Threatening to Murder and Drug Possession (Update: Tauranga Crown Solicitor Withdraws Attempt to Procure Murder Charge)

Dirty Deeds Done Dirt Cheap …

60 year old Phil Rudd, the longtime drummer of AC/DC, has been arrested in New Zealand for allegedly trying to have two men killed and charged with attempting to “procure” a murder. Rudd was also charged with possession of methamphetamine and cannabis and threatening to kill. According to the charges by police, Rudd had tried to get two men killed,  their names and that of the intended hitman were all suppressed by the judge. Rudd has yet to enter a plea and is due back in court again on November 27.

AC/DC – Guns For Hire

AC/DC drummer Phil Rudd was arrested in New Zealand on Thursday morning local time and charged with attempting to procure a murder, as first reported by Stuff.co.nz. A member of the Tauranga Central division of New Zealand Police confirmed Rudd’s arrest to Rolling Stone, but did not provide any additional details. According to Stuff, Rudd allegedly tried to have two as-yet-unidentified men killed and was also charged with possession of methamphetamine, possession of cannabis and threatening to kill.

The longtime drummer appeared in Tauranga District Court on Thursday afternoon local time and was released on bail. He is due back for his next hearing on November 27th and faces up to 10 years in prison on the murder-for-hire charge if convicted. New Zealand police have yet to reveal any details behind Rudd’s arrest or who were the intended victims. According to New Zealand news outlet The Sun, Rudd was “accused of procuring murder” between September 25th and 26th.

The drug charges pertain to a raid on the 60-year-old drummer’s house conducted by police on Thursday.

AC/DC drummer Phil Rudd on New Zealand murder plot charge, Band comments:

AC/DC are due to release a new album later this year.

A statement on the band’s website said: “We’ve only become aware of Phil’s arrest as the news was breaking. We have no further comment.

“Phil’s absence will not affect the release of our new album Rock or Bust and upcoming tour next year.”

UPDATE I: Phil Rudd, AC/DC drummer, has most serious charge in alleged New Zealand murder-for-hire plot withdrawn.

A New Zealand crown solicitor withdrew the most serious charge against AC/DC drummer Phil Rudd on Thursday, dropping the attempting to procure murder charge in an alleged murder plot involving “working girls.”

A disheveled Rudd, 60, appeared “thunderstruck” in Tauranga District Court on Wednesday, hours after his waterfront mansion was raided by police and faced several charges, including threatening to kill as well as possession of methamphetamine and cannabis.

Paul Mabey, Rudd’s attorney, said in a statement that an overzealous New Zealand police investigation pushed their case without consulting Tauranga Crown Solicitor Greg Hollister-Jones, who agreed Thursday to strike the attempting to procure murder charge.

“The charge alleging an Attempt to Procure Murder should never have been laid,” Mabey said. “The Crown Solicitors opinion was not sought. The charge is now withdrawn — within 24 hours of Mr. Rudd’s first appearance in court.”

The law enforcement heroes who were killed were Sacramento County Deputy Danny Oliver, 47,  a 15 year veteran of the police force and a husband and father of two daughters. Also murdered was Placer County Deputy Michael David Davis Jr., 42, an 18 year veteran with a wife and four children.God bless their souls. Our prayers and condolences go out to the family, friends of Danny Oliver and Michael David Davis Jr. and their fellow police officers.

 The suspect alleged to have shot three northern California sheriff’s deputies Friday, killing two, was deported twice and has a criminal record, federal officials said late Saturday.

A U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement spokeswoman said that the fingerprints of the suspected shooter match those of a man named Luis Enrique Monroy-Bracamonte. Monroy-Bracamonte was initially deported to Mexico in 1997 after being convicted of drug possession in Arizona. Four years later, he was arrested and deported again for an unspecified offense.

“The fingerprints were the basis for our request for an immigration detainer,” ICE spokeswoman Virginia Kice told The Associated Press. The detainer requests that local authorities transfer him to federal custody after his case is adjudicated so ICE can purse his deportation, Kice said.

The suspect initially identified himself as Marcelo Marquez, 34, of Salt Lake City. He is charged with two counts each of murder, attempted murder and carjacking. The suspect’s wife, Janelle Marquez-Monroy, was also arrested Friday and charged with carjacking and attempted murder.

  • Violent night as 13 are shot Saturday night in NY

Daily Commentary – Monday, June 30, 2014 Download

Violent Weekend Leaves 13, make that 21 Shot Across The Five Boroughs:

New York is considered #4 on the list of most strict state gun laws. So how many of the guns used in the commission of these crimes were actually legally attained? One would probably suspect few to none. The NRO brings up an interesting coincidence ... “Weird. It’s almost as if some said this would happen if NYC ended its effective stop-question-and frisk policing. . . – Greg Pollowitz.”

It was a violent night in New York City after at least 21 people were shot in incidents spanning each of the five boroughs.

As CBS 2?s Janelle Burrell reported, one of the shootings happened on Staten Island, where a man is fighting for his life after being shot in the face.

The incident happened at around 3:30 a.m. on Amboy Road in the New Dorp section of Staten Island.

Police were still on the scene Sunday morning collecting and processing evidence, including a backpack that belonged to the 42-year-old victim.

New Brunswick RCMP said the police received a call at 7:20 p.m. AT Wednesday about a man wearing camouflage and carrying guns.  One resident,  Joan MacAlpine-Stiles, recalled seeing the gunman when she opened a window and said, “Oh my God, there he is with camouflage and the headband and a gun, and it looked like a bow he had with him, and I mean he was just through our backyard.”

A man dressed in fatigues and carrying a rifle went on a rampage, killing three police officers and wounding two others.
