Regional

The convicted killer of two Virginia college students has been diagnosed with cancer.

Jesse Matthew Jr. is serving multiple life sentences in the 2009 murder of Virginia Tech student Morgan Harrington and the 2014 murder of University of Virginia student Hannah Graham.

He pleaded guilty in 2016 to both killings. He was transferred on Monday to a different prison so he can receive medical treatment.

Harrington’s mother said a prosecutor told her Matthew has Stage 4 colon cancer.
