VIRGINIA BEACH-The grand jury Monday will hear the evidence against a man accused of murdering the mother of his children.

Jamiel Graves is charged with killing his ex-girlfriend, Mandi Myers, in November 2012 in her Va. Beach apartment.

In Va. Beach court last Tuesday, the lead investigator testified the 29-year-old had been strangled and suffered a blow to the head.

Court records state Myers confessed to killing her and stealing her car.

For now, he's charged with 1st Degree Murder and Larceny of a Firearm; the charge of grand larceny of a vehicle was temporarily withdrawn, said Commonwealth's Attorney spokeswoman Macie Pridgen.

The Grand Jury meets May 6 and will decide whether to send the case to trial.  

A motions hearing in the case is set for June 18.

Graves, meantime, faces a murder charge in Norfolk in the death of his neighbor also in November.  Phylicia Robinson lived in one unit of a duplex on Marlow Ave. and Graves lived in other unit.  Her remains were found in the closet of his home.
