FAIRFAX, Va. (AP) — The attempted murder trial of Jesse Matthew has resumed with testimony from the police officer who first responded to an alleged assault in 2005.

Matthew is on trial in Fairfax for attempted murder and sexual assault on a woman. He is also charged in a separate case with capital murder in the abduction and death last year of University of Virginia student Hannah Graham.

Fairfax City Police Lt. Joseph Trahey said Tuesday the woman attacked in 2005 was covered in blood and appeared to be in shock afterward.

A nurse specializing in sexual assault also detailed the injuries the woman received and her efforts to recover DNA samples after the attack.

Police say DNA recovered from the attack links Matthew to the crime.
