Two Blacksburg residents have been arrested and charged in connection with the death of a Virginia Tech student.

Jessica Michelle Ewing, 22, has been charged with second-degree murder (a felony), while Keifer Kyle Brown, 23, has been charged with being an accessory after the fact (a misdemeanor) and that he transported, secreted, concealed or altered a dead body (a felony). Both were arrested early Monday morning.

Court records state that Samantha Shrestha, a Virginia Tech senior, is the person who was killed and that the incident occurred sometime Saturday. Police said the investigation began on Sunday but have not released any additional details about the incident.

Police sent out notices Monday morning asking for the public’s help in locating a black 2004 Mercedes C320, which was found that morning in Montgomery County. Police would not specify where the abandoned vehicle was found.

Ewing is a senior at Virginia Tech, while Brown graduated in August 2013. Both are being held without bond at Montgomery County Jail. A preliminary hearing has been scheduled for April 17.

    What has happened to american society. Land of freedom, but not free from racism and violence. Especially violence is done because of skin color. both of them should be charged with a harsh and long prision term. and Jessica Michelle degree should be cancelled with no chance of return as well as Keifer Kyle Brown should be scrapped.

    Red Indians were the original habitant of USA, not the white people. American White people should stop targeting other color people.
