The adoptive father of the late Anjelica “A.J.” Hadsell was indicted on Wednesday for charges related to his interference of the investigation into her disappearance. Indictments against Wesley Hadsell included four counts of obstructing justice, possession of ammunition by a convicted felon and statutory burglary.

A.J. Hadsell, a freshman at Longwood University, went missing from her Norfolk home on March 2, and her remains were found more than a month later behind an abandoned home on Smith’s Ferry Road (Route 258) in Southampton County.

The elder Hadsell is not facing charges related directly to her death, but remains in custody without bond. His bench trial is scheduled for Wednesday, July 8.
