UVA suspect Jesse Matthew indicted in 2005 rape case

The prime suspect in the disappearance of University of Virginia student Hannah Graham has been indicted for sexual assault.

A grand jury indicted Jesse Matthew in a 2005 rape. The indictment also includes charges of attempted murder and abduction. The case against Matthew is growing; he's been forensically linked to the case of Morgan Harrington, the Virginia Tech student who vanished in Charlottesville, Virginia in 2009.

The indictment comes as a police search team found a skull and bones scattered just 8 miles from where Hannah Graham was last seen.

Jean Casarez is OutFront from Charlottesville.

Ebola patient Nina Pham's condition downgraded to "fair"

CNN has obtained new images from inside the plane that nurse Nina Pham flew from Dallas to a new hospital, the National Institutes of Health in Maryland.

In the photo, health care workers on board are no longer wearing hazmat suits. It's a stark contrast to the pictures of them loading her onto and off of the plane, where they were in full gear.

During the 3-hour flight, Pham flew in the rear of the plane in a specialized containment tent. Health officials say doctors downgraded her condition early Friday because she was fatigued from the trip.

Dr. Sanjay Gupta has more OutFront.
