Yesterday, there was a conference call with over 150 alumnae from around the country.

It's looking to raise upwards of 20-million dollars to help Sweet Briar.

Judge Grants Matthew Delay

(Metro) An Albemarle County judge is granting a defense motion to delay the trial of the man accused of killing a University of Virginia student. 

The trial had been scheduled to start June 29th, but a hearing will be held May 5th to determine when Jesse Matthew's trial will start. 

The judge also allowed the defense to hire a DNA expert in the case involving last year's abduction and murder of Hannah Graham.
