Richmond, Va. – Jesse Matthew, the man accused of abducting and murdering UVa student Hannah Graham, is now facing capital murder charges.

These charges were upgraded and it means he could be sentenced to the death penalty now.

He was initially indicted on first degree murder charges earlier this year.

Officials say Graham was last seen leaving a Charlottesville bar with Matthew on September 13th, 2014. Her remains were found in Albermarle County on abandoned property in October. This was just eight miles from where she was last seen.

Matthew was taken into custody on September 24th in Galveston County, Texas.
